GalleryA while back I logged a  post on here detailing the rise of the British ‘staycation’ and it’s effect on London’s arts. The BBC website published a news story today claiming that museums and galleries are seeing an increase in visitors, most likely due to the recession. An interesting quote by the Director at the Arts Fund, Andrew McDonald, stood out, “It’s clear that when times are tough our cultural institutions provide both a great value-for-money experience and a distraction from financial worries.”
