GSA History

postcard frontThe Glasgow School of Art was founded over 160 years ago. As one of the oldest art and design institutions in the UK, the GSA is unique in its ability to illustrate the nature and history of art education itself; document trends, styles and fashions both in the practice and in the education of artists, designers and architects and the important role the School played in this. More information can be found on the School’s main website.
