The winning work will be framed and exhibited in the Summer Exhibition at Palace House.

Museum Director Chris Garibaldi will speak on behalf of the museum. The team has worked incredibly hard over the past six months and came extremely close to being the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2017.
The winner, The Hepworth Wakefield, was announced on 5th July but Palace House takes huge pride in the fact that it is the first sporting museum to make the shortlist.
