Archibald Knox

The Big Archibald Knox Event!

Visit the Isle of Man to gain experience and understanding of Archibald Knox, the great designer and artist.

You will experience wonderful examples of his work, many currently in private collections or not on public display. You will also appreciate how this beautiful island's history, culture, spitituality and scenery inspired and motovated this great designer, artist and teacher.

In the past there have been significant exhibitions of Knox in the UK and the USA but this event will be larger, and more comprehensive. It will showcase Knox, his work and the Isle of Man to the world from the vantage point of the island's importance to his work and spirit.




The Archibald Knox Trail has been developed using QR code technology. By using the maps shown below you can plan a visit to see 27 places of Knox interest on the Isle of Man which contain over 60 items of his work, or details about his life.

For example, Braddan New cemetery is one of the 27 places but in the cemetery are 12 graves designed by, or associated with Knox.

As the website maps are of smaller scale than the actual physical map leaflet you may have to try capturing the scan a few times before being successful.

People of the Isle of Man, and visitors, can obtain free Knox Trail leaflets at visitors' centres, hotels, public houses and libraries.

Trail booklets can be purchased at the Manx Museum or via the The Archibald Knox Forum email - akforum@manx.net
