The Royal Scottish Academy, an imposing neo-classical structure was designed by William Playfair in the 1830s. Originally the home of the Society of Antiquaries and the Royal Society, the Royal Scottish Academy took over residence in 1911. Today, in early summer and midwinter, it holds exhibitions of contemporary Scottish work. The Royal Scottish Society of Watercolourists, the Society of Scottish artists and the Academy itself are frequent contributors. Student art is also often exhibited. RSA also presents exciting multi-media programs featuring the latest in film, video, digital and sound works.
