Adopt a Lowry

We invite you to be a part of the LS Lowry Collection.

We are offering people the unique chance to adopt an LS Lowry painting or drawing and play an important part in conserving the world’s largest public collection of LS Lowry’s works.

Adopt a Lowry makes a great gift and is a unique way to commemorate a special person or occasion. From £500, you can help shape the future of The Lowry by providing vital financial support which allows us to preserve, restore and display the LS Lowry Collection, and offer an outstanding programme in our Galleries and in the community.

 "My sons knew of my great admiration of Lowry, and one of them after reading about this new scheme arranged to present it to me for my big birthday. It was a complete surprise. It would have been enough to just know it had been done, but the benefits of patronage, including special viewings, lunches and cocktail parties really does make it a gift that keeps on giving". Noel Copley, Lowry Adopter

LS Lowry works available for adoption include:

The Cripples 1949

A Doctor's Waiting Room c1920
