Glasgow City Centre, Gorbals
The latest art work to be added to the long running Gorbals Art
Project, The Gorbals Boys, is now located on the
junction of Cumberland Street and Queen Elizabeth Gardens.
Gorbals Arts Project (GAP) is a locally based project
committed to working in partnership with local communities to
produce artwork in the development of arts-led regeneration.
GAP is very much involved in working in collaboration with
local community groups in community led projects. These public
commissions differ from other public commissions as the community
makes the decision.
GAP have collaborated with a number of local groups and
statutory agencies in these projects including New Gorbals Housing
Association, Local Primary Schools, Safer Gorbals, Govanhill
Housing Association, South Lanarkshire Council and Greater Glasgow
Other recent GAP projects include the Gorbals Rose War Memorial
(2004), Townhead Tree (2007) and Teardrop (2008).
The art projects shown on this page have all been completed. The
Gorbals Art Project continues to work with the local community to
produce new pieces of public art.
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.
