Kurt Schwitters' last Merzbau: The Elterwater Merz Barn

Merz Barn Fund-Raising Update

Guardian 4.5.16

The wonderful news that we have been waiting to announce: the Merz Barn has received an amazing £25,000 gift from the Galerie Gmurzynska in Zurich.

To cap this news we have also heard that The University of Cumbria has given the project a £5,000 grant;  and the Cumbria Community Foundation has awarded a grant of £15,000 to complete the reparations to the damage caused by the winter’s floods and storms.

Work will now begin on putting the Merz Barn, the Shippon, and the site to rights.

Fund-raising continues for the upgrading and restoration of the rest of the site.
