Last week a group of Project Ability artists went to Edinburgh for the day. We meet at Buchanan bus station and travelled over by bus.
Our first stop was the portrait gallery where we all wandered around taking in several different shows. We then travelled over to the City Art Gallery to meet Mike Inglis and see his show commemorating 40 years of the traveling art bus.
He had created a small village of sorts with a windmill, shop, sleeping areas and gathering point. There was another structure full of art, flyers and objects discarded by artists who had worked on the bus over the years.
We then went upstairs from that to see another exhibition that was a timeline of the buses history. It was a fascinating day out.
