We had an exciting start to the exhibition with it being featured on STV local news and a busy time at the official launch on Friday evening where the exhibition was opened by Deputy First Minister John Swinney MSP . Talking about the show, he said “I am delighted to be launching this major exhibition celebrating the life and work of one of Perth’s famous sons, as part of the Festival of Architecture 2016. Fergus Purdie Architects have done an excellent job in bringing the life and work of Patrick Geddes to life in what will surely be a very popular display in Perth Museum and Art Gallery. It has already been a busy year for the Museum and I hope that this exhibition will bring many more visitors through its doors over the coming weeks.”
Many thanks to him and all who contributed to making the evening a great success.
