A stunning exhibition for all the family, Shetland Arts is delighted to be hosting Natural Selection at the old Anderson High School site in Lerwick

26 Jan - 10 Mar 2019
Opening Hours
Wednesday - Sunday: 11am - 5pm

Observing a blackbird building a nest in the garden of his parents' house several years ago, artist Andy Holden began an extended conversation about the nest as an overlooked aspect of bird life with his father, eminent ornithologist Peter Holden.

This developed into Natural Selection, a collaborative exhibition of objects, sculpture and videos, commissioned by Artangel, an organisation that produces and presents extraordinary art in unexpected places in London, across the UK and around the world.

Access is via the main entrance at the old Anderson High School, Lovers Loan, Lerwick.

Fully wheelchair accessible.

Open Wednesday - Sunday - 11:00 - 17:00 - FREE

Shetland Arts is hosting Natural Selection with generous support from Sullom Voe Association Ltd., Lerwick Community Council, Shetland Islands Council, Artangel and Creative Scotland.
