Past, present, future

13th April 2007 at 01:00
Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum has opened an exhibition celebrating the history, culture, music, language, geology and geography of the Highlands and islands.

Fonn's Dutchas: Land and Legacy includes displays of iconic paintings, manuscripts and objects, including a book once owned by Napoleon. The past, present and future of the area will be examined, with a focus on the impact of new technology, land ownership, emigration and immigration, and how lives have changed over the centuries. There will also be educational activities.

Exhibits have come from the National Galleries of Scotland, the National Library of Scotland and the National Museums of Scotland, as well as museums in the Highlands and islands. Funding is from the Scottish Executive, as part of the Highland 2007 project.
