Lucky Button at The Foundling Museum

19 January 2018 – 6 May 2018 | Book tickets

In their Lucky Button exhibition, The Foundling Museum display a series of original illustrations by award-winning illustrator Michael Foreman produced for Lucky Button; a new book by Foundling Fellow Michael Morpurgo.
 
Inspired by the history of the Foundling Hospital, the book tells the moving story of a lonely boy struggling to cope with school bullies and caring for his mother. A mysterious encounter reveals life in the Foundling Hospital in the eighteenth century and unravels a touching tale about the power of music.
 
Presented amongst the Museum’s historic Collection, the display celebrates the power of illustration to make creative links across the centuries and bring storytelling to life. This wonderful exhibition offers the chance for illustration fans to come face-to-face with original artwork from one of today’s foremost practitioners.
 
Lucky Button takes place at The Foundling Museum, 19 January – 6 May 2018. Further information and tickets can be found here.
