We are delighted to announce that the British Art Medal Society’s President’s Medal for 2017 is to be awarded to the Royal Mint Museum in recognition of the museum’s support of BAMS educational activities over the years and the contribution the Museum has made and continues to make in researching the history of the medal. The society’s 2017 Marsh Award for the Encouragement of Medallic Art is to be presented to artist and teacher Kate Harrison. Kate was formerly Head of Jewellery at Loughborough School of Art and Design, where she encouraged her students to make medals. She has also organised medal events and promoted BAMS and contemporary medal-making in numerous ways.
These will be presented later in the year, dates to be confirmed.
