The Collins Gallery is an integral part of the University of Strathclyde presenting a cultural interface between the University and the city.
Located close to Glasgow ‘s city centre, only five minutes’ walk from the railway stations, prime shopping areas and the Gallery of Modern Art, the Collins attracts some 60,000 visitors per year from the local and tourist communities.
The annual programme of ten, temporary exhibitions is broad-ranging, representing contemporary and historic Fine and Applied Art by established and new artists throughout Britain and abroad. Most of the exhibitions, which are originated by the Collins, are complemented by educational activities for visitors of all ages and abilities. Encompassing artist-led practical workshops, dance, drama, music, lectures and conferences, such events attract some 4,000 participants, including children of nursery age upwards, students, vocational students of more mature years and specialists.
In 2000, the Collins Gallery received a Scottish Museum of the Year Award from the Intellectual Access Trust for our programme of access for people with learning difficulties, and documentation of educational, combined arts events for school and nursery groups have been published by the Arts Council of England.
