Welcome to the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society.

In May and June the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society presented ‘Gaia’ by Luke Jerram – Part of our 50th Anniversary Celebrations.

To celebrate its 50th year, the CRM Society is holding a series of events to mark its anniversary at its home at Queen’s Cross. This is the former church designed by Mackintosh and now operating as a successful venue for music and events such as weddings, concerts, films and talks. Queen’s Cross itself – is one of the most complete original Mackintosh buildings in the city – is a visitor attraction in its own right, drawing visitors from abroad as well as around the UK.

Gaia – named after the Greek Goddess of Earth – will be open to the public from Saturday 13 May 2023 and run until 24 June 2023.

Measuring six metres in diameter, Gaia features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet, floating in three dimensions. With each centimetre of the internally lit sculpture describing 21km of the Earth’s surface, which is 2.1 million times smaller than the real Earth.

Further events will take place in October. Information on the various events will be posted on the Mackintosh Queen’s Cross website and also shared through our e-newsletter and on our Social Media Channels.

We would like to thank The Hugh Fraser Foundation and Glasgow Area Partnership for their support as part of our 50th Anniversary Celebrations.
