In light of the recent developments regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Royal Scottish Academy of Art & Architecture will close to the public from 5pm on Tuesday 17th March until Thursday 30th April at the earliest.

Over this time we will be working to host exhibitions online and will continue to showcase wonderful works by Scottish artists from our Collections and across our networks of artist programmes, via our websites and social media platforms.

The Academy thanks you for your support and encouragement and trusts that we will see you back in our exhibitions soon. We hope that you stay safe and enjoy our exhibitions, collections and artists’ programmes online whilst we are closed.
