Adopt an Artwork



"With more space and a new approach to interpretation, Aberdeen Art Gallery should be able to claim its rightful place as one of the great collections of national importance."

Sir John Leighton
Director General, National Galleries Scotland

In 1885 Aberdeen Art Gallery was founded by visionary individuals who gave their time, money and artwork for the benefits of the city.

Adopt an Artwork is our new fundraising scheme that allows you to 'adopt' one of our treasures for a period of two years. This is a unique opportunity that enables you to play a part and help create a world class cultural centre for Aberdeen and North East Scotland.

Donate £500, £250 or £100 to adopt one of our precious artworks and support our Redevelopment project to ensure our collections are protected and available for generations.
