Psychedelic in the Grassmarket

Head to the Grassmarket this September and explore 15 pieces of artwork, which span a century of history, throughout 22 locations in this unique open-air walking exhibition. 

The artwork dates from 1850-1950 and combines rare old photos of the Grassmarket and Old Town from the collections of Edinburgh’s libraries with a twist of psychedelic colour and vibrancy.

 Highlights include the hokeypokey man, a homage to the Italian ice cream sellers who lived and worked in the Grassmarket in the 1900s, and a ventriloquist performing in the Grassmarket’s public space.

Visitors can access a map on the Greater Grassmarket's website to find out the exact location and more background to each piece of artwork. Find out more at
