60s Op Art

About 60s Op Art

Take a look at the Bridget Riley painting in the museum. We are going to play with materials to make our own funky optical art.

Glasgow Museums welcomes families and children of all ages and all our venues are FREE to visit. Events are also FREE unless otherwise stated.

Our displays and exhibitions are designed with families in mind, so you’ll always find something interesting to explore when you visit.

The activities listed here are for family groups and children. If you would like to arrange a visit for an organised group, please contact the individual museum in advance.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 60s Op Art are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
