Online appeal

Home to some of the most important contemporary art and cultural thinking for over 40 years, Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery is undergoing a major extension and refurbishment so that it can meet its programming ambitions. While closed, a transformational redevelopment project, Open Out is underway, securing the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand into its neighbouring building.

Having reached 90% of its £3.8million target, it has launched a Gift Registry, allowing anyone who has taken something away from their own experience of the gallery to donate to the Open Out  campaign, by selecting a virtual gift they’d like to give back in return. This can be anything from a pair of coat hooks for the new learning studios, or a shelf for displaying hand-picked titles in the popular Bookshop, to a newly-commissioned public artwork created in and for the revived building. These ‘gifts’ can be entered at the Gallery’s Gift Registry where donations can be made towards the Open Out campaign – a great way to play a part in helping to build a new future for the Fruitmarket.
