Curating for Charity

In 2012 Furr co-founded, curated and co-organized the Art Exhibition/auction Liverpool Love featuring some of the countries leading and emerging artists at the New £72m Museum of Liverpool.
Many internationally renowned artists got involved in the project to create unique pieces of Art including Furr himself,
Yoko Ono, Sir Peter Blake, David Mach, Bruce Mclean, Noel Fielding, Chris Bracey, Klaus Voormann and more
The exhibition helped to see the biggest increase in footfall to a museum outside of London and raised £75k on the night in aid of the children’s hospice Claire House.
