Robert Burns exhibition at the Mitchell

An exhibition is currently underway at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow, commemorating the life and works of Robert Burns. The show, which features contributions from contemporary artists around the world, including Ed Ruscha, Tracey Emin, Douglas Gordon and Peter Howson, runs until September 20th, and also contains many previously unseen and rare artefacts from the bard's life. For more information, visit www.s1play.com/out-and-about/event/inspired.

In addition, the Mitchell holds a great deal of material on the poet within its Robert Burns Collection - for more on this, visit www.glasgow.gov.uk/en/Residents/Library_Services/The_Mitchell/Mitchell_Treasures/burnscollection.htm.
