Leeds College of Art has been the major creative outlet for artists in Yorkshire for generations, giving figures such as Damien Hirst and Barbara Hepworth a place to dip their toes in the creative ocean. It is therefore unsurprising to discover that the college itself hosts a number of exhibitions from both current and past alumni as well as other renowned artists.
If you’re not a student of the college, the building alone is worth a visit, to explore the place where so much of Leeds's cultural history has been produced. With its grand, winding staircases and classic Victorian architecture, the building is a work of art in itself. [Edy Hurst]
