Possil-Meteorite

 

The Trail of The Possil Meteorite was a one day public art trail through North Glasgow to celebrate a unique cosmic event. The Possil Meteorite is one of only four ever found in Scotland and is on display at The Hunterian Museum in the city. Mandy McIntosh was lead artist and worked in partnership with other artists and participating venues on commissions and workshop strategy, with a focus on collaborative working between places. The event was produced by Glasgow Life with funding from Connected Arts Network and included Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Friends of Possil Greenspace, Concrete Gardens, Lambhill Stables and Love Milton. In the run up to the event, libraries, schools and community hubs were invited to participate in fabrication and creative learning workshops with artists and on the day, all events were free. Additionally, Mandy McIntosh made an animation with P5 pupils from St.Monicas Primary School in Milton to mark the 1804 landing. View the film “Space is Special” here
