With last week's sizzling private views out of the way, Edinburgh College of Art's last ever independent degree show opened to the public yesterday morning.
The opening hours are Monday - Thursday 10am - 8pm, Friday - Sunday 10am - 5pm, and closing on Sunday 19th June.
This brilliant degree show includes the most graduates ever from the distance access degree (I'd call it the part-time degree but it's actually full-time workload with only attendance being part-time) - go see them all in studio B26!
Summer School starts on the 18th July, with a good range of classes for five-day intensive study (including an exhibition at the end of each one) and some last minute special offers. There are still a few space left, so check the brochure on http://www.eca.ac.uk/index.php?id=1617 for details. Call 0131 221 6109 Mon – Fri 9.00am – 5.00pm to book.
From August 2011 the University of Edinburgh officially takes over Edinburgh College of Art and will make whatever changes it chooses. Many changes have already been implemented, with the closure of one department, the reduction of key staff members, and instructions to the ECA Student Representative Council (who run the wonderful Wee Red Bar and the Wee Red Lounge amongst other things) being to dissolve the committee and hand over the keys.
RIP Edinburgh College of Art. Long live Edinburgh College of Art.
