A portrait of acclaimed film director Sir Ridley Scott is going on show at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne. The portrait is on loan from the National Portrait Gallery, London as part of its COMING HOME project, which sees portraits of iconic individuals being loaned to places across the UK with which they are most closely associated.
Through schools young people aged 12-18 are invited to create a portrait in response to one of the three themes below:
At Home - look close
Coming Home - look out
Thinking of Home: look in
