Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design is now one of the largest in the UK, and was recognised in the recent national Research Assessment Exercise as Scotland's leading art school. Yet the college began with just one member of staff and two small rooms as part of Dundee Technical Institute. Its extraordinary growth would have impossible without a generous bequest made one hundred years ago by local businessman James Duncan of Jordanstone. The exhibition explores the complex history of the college and celebrates its achievements in fighting for survival for many years before finally emerging triumphant. Included in the show are unique documents, photographs and artworks from the museum, archive and library collections of Duncan of Jordanstone College, the University of Dundee and the University of Abertay.
