The GSA Magazine Project, 2010-2011

MC_G_9In 2009 the GSA secured national Recognition status for its Mackintosh Collection in a scheme administered by Museums Galleries Scotland.

As a Recognised Collection, GSA was able to successfully apply for a £36,988 grant to conserve and digitize an important four volumes of work by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his contemporaries dating from the mid 1890s.

Known simply as the GSA Magazine these volumes continue to provide important source material for researchers and individual volumes have been loaned to a number of major exhibitions in the UK and overseas. An accompanying website has been created that allows for the GSA Magazine to be viewed in its entirety, thereby increasing accessibility whilst reducing the need for the original volumes to be handled.
