Wimbledon College of Art - New home for theatre archives

March 20, 2008

One of the most extensive and important 20th-century theatre design archives has a new home at Wimbledon College of Art. The relocation of the archives of Jocelyn Herbert will allow students access to more than 4,000 drawings, masks, sketchbooks, models, photographs and correspondence. It was Herbert's wish that the archive have an active life in an art school rather than falling into purely academic use in a library or museum. A new building, funded by the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation, will house the archive. An exhibition on Herbert is being held in the gallery at Wimbledon from 25 April to 23 May.
