Art in Granton 2019

A heritage walking tour hosted by the University of Edinburgh’s Curious Edinburgh digital app is the inspiration for the exhibition ‘Art in Granton’. More than 60 contributions by 30+ artists and makers celebrates the rich industrial history, the urban vistas, the landscapes, the shoreline and the people living and working in Granton. The variety of artworks on show include figurative and abstract work, photography, ceramics and an audiovisual installation.
