Join us for an online session on Lord Mungo Murray / Am Morair Mungo Moireach. Exploring the Painting at Home (English session with Gaelic).

Saturday 24th April at 1pm

https://bit.ly/2RXwcZB

In 2019, 'A Highland Chieftain: Portrait of Lord Mungo Murray' (1668) by John Michael Wright was acquired by Glasgow Museums, and is now on display in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum Scottish Identity Gallery. In this session, we will explore the painting to tell a story of Lord Mungo Murray and Gaelic culture in what is the earliest major portrait depicting full Highland dress. We'll be learning some Gaelic words and phrases to describe his dress and the objects within the painting, too.
No Gaelic necessary - this session is open and accessible to all. Come along and find out more about the painting, and pick up some Gaelic along the way!

We will contact attendees after the event to ask for their feedback in a simple survey, you could win a £30.00 M&S voucher by participating.

While the band can't travel due to Covid-19 they filmed two songs from their new album in Glasgow. The other will be shown on The Late Late Show with James Corden, broadcast in the UK tonight on Sky Comedy.

handy hint ,perhaps have signs on the pavements say in partick or near where people in wheelchairs and there carers maybe walking from even the car park stating that you need tickets to get into the museum .i found out the hardway as did the 85 year old wheelchair bound lady as we had walked all the way from partick in sleet and rain desperate to get a cup of tea and see the museum and use the bathroom and we got told we couldnt enter ....unreal and frankly disgusting....so my mum who was stuck in a care home for a year was so upset to not even have a chance to visit the place not every person in the world is ONLINE esp those in care homes and disabled people who cant use technology.
does anyone know anything about this
