Ae Fond Vote

It’s been a busy time at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, Alloway- not only did the legendary Liz Lochead, Scotland’s new makar (national poet), officially open the new museum recently, they have also succeeded in being one of ten museums longlisted for this year’s Art Fund Prize.  A panel of judges will visit all ten museums and a short list will be announced on 19 May with the final winner announced in June.  The panel will take into account the results of a public poll so I would encourage you to cast your vote now – it only takes a few seconds but with a prize fund of £100,000 it could mean a lot to the only Scottish museum on this year’s longlist.
