X Marks the Spot: The MUSA Young Artist Award 2013
25 May - 10 August 2013
Treasures are usually objects of great beauty that inspire the imagination and give fascinating insights into individuals and societies. Is this always the case? What are those insights? And what messages can we give through the treasures we create? Pupils from across Fife responded to these questions and the stunning treasures on display at MUSA for this year's Young Artist Award. See the winning entries here and discover that Fife really does have talent.
‘Journeys – 600 Years of the University of St Andrews’
This exhibition aims to celebrate the University’s long and distinguished history, placing key events in the context of other world events and examining this history from the point of view of students (both past and present), staff and the general St Andrews community.
The exhibition is laid out in four display cases, with one theme per case being examined:
- Journeys Through Time
- Journeys Around the World
- Journeys of the Imagination
- Armchair Journeys
Objects from across the University’s collections and from a broad range of time periods are displayed to help visitors examine these themes, and personal responses to (or recollections of) these objects form a basis to help visitors connect with them.
Two large wall spaces contain a timeline of University events, placed in context of Scottish and world events and a wall graphic based on benefactors to the University.
