Glasgow City Centre, IFSD
As part of the Clean Glasgow Campaign, to promote a cleaner and
brighter Glasgow, Glasgow Community and Safety Services
commissioned the Australian artist, Sam Bates, to paint various
murals in 3 locations around the city centre.
The murals are a celebration of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in
Glasgow and are sited under the Kingston Bridge at Springfield
Quay, next to the Renfrew Ferry and under the Central Station Rail
Bridge at Custom House Quay.
They have all been treated with a special "anti graffiti"
coating which will allow them to be easily cleaned without any
damage to the murals themselves.
Completed during 2009.
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
