The ART IN NEWPORT series of projects explores the permanent collections of the Newport Museum and Art Gallery. Each project comprised an exhibition in the public gallery plus online resources. / More: Projects

Buzz Magazine, June 2007 | Review of DOCUMENTING THE CITY | "The exhibition also celebrates the city's desire to carry itself steadily forward into the future. This unique collection will not only be museum-bound as people can access and admire the anthology from their very own homes - an online gallery and archive has been set up to further enhance Newport's reputation as an extremely forward moving and thought provoking metropolis". / More: News

April 2010: A note on the status of the Art in Newport archive

The Art in Newport projects archive is independently maintained by John Wilson.

The purpose of the archive is to record a series of projects produced over the period 2000 - 2008, and hence to enable their ongoing public access.

The aim of the projects was to promote the permanent collections of art of the Newport Museum and Art Gallery, through a series of themed exhibitions and related online resources.
