A Portrait in Progress

About A Portrait in Progress

Contemporary Scottish artist Calum Colvin (OBE RSA) will create a portrait of Scottish-American industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie to commemorate the centenary of his death. Colvin will be constructing his portrait on-site at the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum.

Visitors are invited to come and watch him work and see the portrait taking shape as well as to cast their vote on what museum artefact should be included in the picture.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Portrait in Progress are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
