Loo-king lovely

Culture Perth and Kinross have revealed two new murals in the public toilets at Perth Art Gallery.

The remarkable murals, artfully crafted by Scottish artists Lindsay Grime and Ellietype (Ellie Mills), breathe new life into the Gallery's public toilets. Drawing inspiration from the art collections housed within the Gallery, the murals represent a fusion of traditional and contemporary artistic influences.

The commissions help to mark the next chapter of the building’s history following its transformation from Perth Museum & Art Gallery into Perth Art Gallery.

It also marks an exciting next step in the wider cultural transformation of the cultural offer in Perth city centre, with the new Perth Museum opening in 2024.

We are excited to share their work with the public as we continue to foster cultural vibrancy in the region.
