Featuring current research and innovative use of The Hunterian collections, 'Take an Object' showcases how items from our collections continue to inspire new ideas and curiosity in the most creative minds.

The exhibition features work developed by students from the MLitt in Technical Art History at the University of Glasgow including replicas, cross-sections and X-ray images which have uncovered a mysterious portrait hidden under a baroque painting; students from Product Design Engineering at The Glasgow School of Art have used 3D-models to re-imagine a Roman hammer used twenty centuries ago in the construction of the Antonine Wall; and designers from the luxury fashion house Loewe demonstrate how Charles Rennie Mackintosh designs are still at the cutting edge of the fashion world today.

The exhibition is open 10.00am - 5.00pm Tuesday to Saturday and 11.00am - 4.00pm on Sundays. Closed Mondays. Admission is free.
