Andrew Carnegie’s International Legacy Week 2013 celebrates the huge impact made by the Scots-American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie and the global network of trusts and foundations he endowed.
The highlight of the week will be the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy Award Ceremony 2013 which celebrates today’s entrepreneurs and changemakers. The Medal is organised by the Carnegie institutions and comes to Scotland in recognition of the Carnegie UK Trust’s centenary.
Andy Warhol: Pop, Power and Politics
Andrew Carnegie’s philanthropy founded the Carnegie Technical Schools, now Carnegie Mellon University, where Andy Warhol gained his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. This exhibition is the first showing in Scotland of many of these Andy Warhol works of art and it will feature portraits of political and public figures including Her Majesty The Queen. Like Carnegie, Warhol also undertook philanthropic activities in his lifetime and the exhibition will explore some of the links between the two Andys. Further details on the Exhibition and Pop Art Print Workshops can be found here.
