GoMA’s Big Big Bus Tour!
Thanks to everyone who took part in GoMA’s Big Big Bus tour on Saturday 17th May 2014. The day was a great success with record numbers visiting the gallery. People took part in bus tours and creative art sessions while being entertained by a variety of choirs and samba bands.
Bus tours left from GoMA to many different places of worship around Glasgow including St Andrew’s Cathedral, Pollokshields Gurdwara and the Central Mosque. Participants were encouraged to get creative and be inspired by these impressive buildings by joining a themed bus tour. The choice of tours included Architecture with Dress for the Weather, Illustration with Little Book Transfers and Creative Art with Dave Sherry. All the art produced on the day was displayed in GoMA.
This event was designed to complement Nathan Coley’s ‘Lamp of Sacrifice, 286 Places of Worship, Edinburgh’ (2004). It was great to get a Glasgow perspective of such iconic buildings.
Thanks also to the West of Scotland Regional Equality Council, all the venues we visited, choirs, bands and the Big Big Sing!
