Sir John Soane’s Museum London:  Drawing Inspiration Featuring Artist in Residence Ella Baron

Join us after dark for this Soane Late featuring Artist in Residence Ella Baron as we delve deeper into the stories and design of this unique Museum, and discover how contemporary artists continue to be inspired by it. 

There will be a display of Ella’s drawings in the South-Drawing Room as well as an opportunity to hear her discuss her work and her experience working at the Museum. The whole Museum will be yours to explore as you wander corridors lined by Sir John Soane’s vast collections including works by Canaletto, Turner and Hogarth.

  • Tickets are available for arrival at either 18:00, 18:30, 19:30 or 20:00. The event finishes at 9.15pm.

About the Artist at Soane Residency

The Drawing Office was where Soane’s draftsmen and apprenticeships worked up his celebrated projects. Just as Soane supported the next generation of architectural talent the opening of the Drawing Office in May 2023 marked the beginning of a new residency programme at the Soane. Two three-month residents will be hosted per year (in the Spring and the Autumn).
