The Real Face of Burns

Real face User

Saturday 21st February 2015 until Sunday 14 June 2015

'The Real Face of Burns' is a mixed group contemporary art exhibition. There were few depictions of the Bard made during his lifetime, yet we all think we know what he looked like. This exciting exhibition seeks to explore further the face of Burns and features alongside the new works, the Reid miniature which Burns himself felt was a good likeness, and the forensically created head of Burns which was produced at Dundee University.
