‘The object of art is to give life shape’: Festival of Museums Fun!

Posted on May 20, 2014 | in Archives, Collections, events, Featured, Library & University Collections | by

On Saturday we hosted a talk and create workshop at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) with Drawing and Painting Lecturer Joan Smith. This was to celebrate the 1940s for the Festival of Museum events being held across the University of Edinburgh Library and Collections. We shared photos, film and stories from the collections about life at ECA in the 1940s. This was to inspire everyone attending to create collages. We thought you’d like to see some of the work!
