Press / Mackintosh The Innovator Competition

Mackintosh The Innovator Competition 30 Jun 2017

Glasgow Style has a new meaning at St. Enoch Centre, where an exhibition of Charles Rennie Mackintosh-inspired art and design works created by Glasgow school pupils goes on display from 1st July until 24th September 2017.

The exhibition features entries to art and design contest, Mackintosh The Innovator: Past Present and Future.

The initiative was established to encourage young people to think creatively about Mackintosh’s legacy and his focus on innovation.

Pupils from four secondary schools - Govan High School, Williamwood High School, Hillhead High School, and Notre Dame High School - have entered the contest, which is divided into two categories: design and expressive.

The submissions, which includes portraits of Mackintosh, a design for Mackintosh-inspired wellington boots, and figurines of famous Scots such as Billy Connolly, will be exhibited in a specially constructed gallery in St. Enoch Centre for several months.

Shoppers are invited to visit the gallery and vote for their favourite entries before an expert judging panel including Ian Elder, chair of Glasgow Mackintosh and manager of The Lighthouse, gives its view.

The winning school in each category receives £200, while the winning individuals receive vouchers worth up to £100 to spend at St. Enoch Centre.

Second and third place runners-up also receive vouchers.

Anne Ledgerwood, General Manager of St. Enoch Centre, said: “The creativity and talent displayed by the pupils taking part in our Mackintosh art and design competition is extraordinary.

"The standard is extremely high, and I applaud each entrant for the hard work they have put in.

“We believe it is vital to the city’s future success to encourage young people to understand and be inspired by Glasgow’s vibrant culture and heritage.

“Our Mackintosh architecture and design is the envy of the world and contributes to the city's reputation as a top shopping destination.

“I hope our shoppers enjoy the exhibition and I’d encourage as many people as possible to visit our specially constructed gallery and register their vote.”
