The Greatest Ever Scot – 14th January 2011
In 2009, thousands of STV viewers and on-line voters selected (quite rightly in our opinion) Robert Burns as the Greatest Ever Scot. To celebrate this, STV have generously commissioned a new public work of art in Burns’ birthplace in Alloway.
STV and a panel of experts have asked a shortlist of some of the country’s best sculptors to present their proposals for a new permanent work to be installed in Alloway.
Before the winning proposal is selected, local people, Burns enthusiasts and art-lovers are invited to an informal presentation to see the proposals and meet some of the artists.
Robert Burns Gifts suggests you get yourself down to the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum on the 14th January (2011) to examine the proposals, discuss the artists’ ideas and be part of those involved in selecting a lasting celebration of the Greatest Ever Scot.
