SWS DFAS VISIT TO GLASGOW , May 9,2018

The Spring 2018 excursion will be to Glasgow to two of its world famous museums, one historic and one that is ultramodern, and of our time. Disabled access is available at both facilities. Our first stop will be at Kelvingrove to visit a new, unmissable exhibition, “Making the Glasgow Style”, which will celebrate

the work of visionary artist,Butterfly Flower Bowling 1912 - Charles Rennie Mackintosh architect, and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, on the 150th anniversary of his birth. It will showcase images and artefacts from a huge body of work related to this rich artistic period, all of which had a dramatic impact on the arts and crafts scene then and have continued to do so. These pieces will be gathered together from civic and private collections, including the Mitchell Library and Archives, and many will be on public view for the very first time.

After lunch we will be moving on to the Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel housed at Pointhouse Quay in an iconic building, designed by internationally renowned architect, the late Dame Zaha Hadid, coincidentally the subject of our lecture by Anthea Streeter on May 8.

On receipt of their booking forms and cheques, Members will be sent further information including the location of available refreshment venues within and outwith the Museum.
