Art Collection

Artwork can be seen throughout the Parliament and adds another dimension to the building, in line with the original intention that the Parliament should embody the unique spirit and character of the Scottish nation. The key ideas and themes used to develop and shape the art collection are - our relationship with the environment, in particular the impact of humanity and politics on the landscape, our relationship with the sea, and our identity and history as people living in Scotland.
