WORKS by international artists Yoko Ono, Sir Peter Blake, Noel Fielding and Stuart Sutcliffe will be brought together in a group exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool.
Liverpool Love is a collection of 29 pieces curated by Merseyside-born artist Christian Furr to raise money for children’s hospice Claire House.
The works symbolise their creators’ love for and connection to the city and its people.
Furr, who conceived the show with Vaughan Davies, says: “Unlike any normal exhibition, when Liverpool Love closes the works won’t be delivered back to the artists’ galleries and studios.
“We will be staging a much more fitting end to the exhibition, with a gala auction of all the works on display, which will see Liverpool Love helping Claire House.”
Joining pieces by famous artists will be works by three brothers who are all affected by the same genetic disorder, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Twins Dan and Sam, 17, and their younger brother Tom, 14, have been visiting Claire House for the past 10 years, where staff give them and their family invaluable support and help them cope with their condition.
The exhibition will run from September 28 to November 25, with the auction taking place on November 17.
Based in Bebington, Wirral, Claire House provides crucial respite and end-of-life care for children and young adults with serious medical conditions, as well as support and friendship for the whole family.
Part of the show will be displayed in the Skylight Gallery at The Museum of Liverpool, which celebrates its first birthday today.
