The Museum of Liverpool presents Liverpool Love, a collection of 29 pieces curated by Merseyside-born artist Christian Furr, will open in the Museum later this year from 28 September to 25 November 2012.

Conceived by Christian Furr and Vaughan Davies, Liverpool Love aims to bring together a contemporary collection of works by artists that symbolise their love and connection to Liverpool and its people.

The exhibition’s main priority is to raise money for local charity Claire House Children’s Hospice, which provides respite and end-of-life care for children and young adults with serious medical conditions, as well as support and friendship for the whole family.

Works by 23 artists are confirmed to feature in the exhibition including Yoko Ono, Sir Peter Blake, Noel Fielding and The Beatles’ original bass guitarist Stuart Sutcliffe. All the pieces displayed have drawn inspiration from the city, depicting Liverpool’s fun, spirit, vivacity and soul in many different ways.

Joining their works will be special pieces by three brothers who are all affected by the same genetic disorder, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Twins Dan and Sam, 17, and their younger brother Tom, 14, have been visiting Claire House for the past 10 years, where staff give them and their family invaluable support and help them cope with their condition. – www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk
