The Friends will be returning for another exciting afternoon at the amazing Lyon Housemuseum and Galleries.
The original Housemuseum is the private residence of founding patrons Corbett and Yueji Lyon and it offers a unique combination of family residence and private museum where 'museum' and 'living' are brought together in a single building. Designed by architect Corbett Lyon, the Housemuseum builds on a lineage of private art collections housed and displayed in residential settings including Sir John Soane’s Museum in London, New York’s Frick Collection, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and London's Wallace Collection.
The new public Housemuseum Galleries are a major expansion of the Lyon Housemuseum, opened in March 2019, and offering a new platform for works of contemporary art, architecture and design. Also designed by Lyon, the new Galleries include large, flexible exhibition spaces specifically designed for large scale artworks and installations. A public forecourt and enclosed sculpture court extend the new museum beyond its walls.
