The Why?s Man
"My art is place specific and people specific." George Wyllie

LEARNING OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
George Wyllie's sculptures were very often displayed 'out of the gallery', and he was critical of being confined to the gallery.
In a spirit of exploration, he also encouraged education 'out of the classroom', and frequently involved young people in creating public sculptures.
Reflecting that, the Whysman Festival includes events - even if some of them are in galleries! - in which schools can participate beyond the classroom.
The Mitchell Library, Glasgow
(2nd November, 2012 - 2nd February, 2013)
This major retrospective exhibition of George Wyllie's work is the jewel in the crown.
The Riverside Museum, Glasgow

Parklea & Langbank
Working with community groups, lots of question marks have been created, decorated and installed in the river. Schools have been having a look and taking part.
