Welcome!

"McLaren 2014 will narrate the progress of Norman’s life in Scotland, from Stirling, through Glasgow, to Edinburgh.

When it occurred to me, back in 2007, that Norman McLaren’s centenary was approaching, I wanted to ensure Scotland recognised this internationally renowned
artist – one that most people in his country of origin hadn’t heard of."

Iain Gardner, Artistic Director, McLaren 2014
