Yorkshire’s Favourite Paintings brought together 27 museums and galleries from across
Yorkshire to cross promote the breadth and quality of their art collections. Together
with creative agency Sumo they ran an innovative campaign which asked the public
to share their views and stories about Yorkshire’s paintings. Find out how working
together helped these museums to get the public talking about their art and drive
more visitors to their venues.
