Distinctions

In 2017, Emery Walker’s House was shortlisted by Apollo magazine for their prestigious international annual ‘Museum Opening of the Year’ award. The other five shortlisted entries included large international institutions, namely the National Gallery of Ireland, Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, Freer Gallery of Arts in Washington DC, Musée d’arts de Nantes (winner) and Musée Camille Claudel in France. This was a great distinction for Emery Walker’s House as, despite its relatively small size and modest budget, its quality and historic significance gained broad recognition.
