Keep an eye on The Open Museum’s Instagram feed for some featured photos and stay up to date on news about the Coming into View Exhibit: Photographing Glasgow on The Open Museum's venue page.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted photos, it has been a pleasure to see and read about your images of Glasgow!

The Exhibit

In the 30th year of both the Open Museum and Glasgow being the European City of Culture, we are inviting community groups and individuals to submit photographs to create a contemporary portrait of the city by those that live in it. This visual story of the city will capture people, places and experiences from a broad range of people behind the lens.

The Open Museum is Glasgow Museums’ outreach team. We take objects from the museum collections out to communities across the city, so that they can be enjoyed by everyone. In particular, we work with communities who may find it difficult to visit our museum venues.

These images will be displayed in our upcoming exhibition Coming into view: Photographing Glasgow, tentatively opening at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum later this year. Stay tuned for news on the exhibit and the opening date – to be confirmed.
