So much so that, apart from London, you'll find nowhere in the whole country that's host to more working artists than Cornwall. Whilst the Tate St. Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum, The Minack Theatre and the Eden Project enjoy the beam of the international spotlight, outstanding local galleries and artists' workshops are everywhere, showcasing Cornwall's vibrant art scene.
