ROBERT OWEN: A NEW VIEW OF SOCIETY 200 YEARS ON
Date: 1st June - 1st December
Location: Saving New Lanark Room, Robert Owen's School for Children
Paid / Free: Entry with a New Lanark Visitor Centre Ticket
Robert Owen: A new View of Society 200 Years On is an exhibition celebrating the bi-centenary of the publication of 'A New View of Society', Robert Owen's seminal text on the formation of human character.
Central to the exhibition is a portrait of Robert Owen by Mary Ann Knight, on loan from the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. The portrait is New Lanark Trust's first ever loan from a national institution and is particularly special as it is one of the few portraits that show Owen as a young man.
Other items being exhibited will include original extracts from ‘A New View of Society’ as well as historical documents, artefacts and paintings relating to Owen’s ideas on the creation of a better society.
