To commemorate the centenary of Andrew Carnegie’s death, the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust has commissioned a contemporary Scottish artist Calum Colvin (OBE RSA) to create a portrait of Mr Carnegie which reflects his life and legacy. Calum Colvin has a unique way of combining photography and painted portraiture with three-dimensional objects.
Calum Colvin will be creating his portrait on-site at the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum between 3 October and 25 November. Visitors are invited to come and see the portrait taking shape as well as to cast their vote on what museum artefact should be included in the work.
