Three prominent gable ends which can be seen from the busy route
through the Clyde Tunnel have been revitalised with artwork
created by local people and Artists.
Two of the designs were created through local competitions and
the third design was developed with local primary schools, St
Jeromes and Elderpark Primary by Artist Geraldine Greene as part of
The Hold your Breath Project to revitalise the Clyde Tunnel.

Grenwich Village in New York, another community born on the banks
of a main city river. The design is by local man, Hugh Donaghy.
Gable 2. The Berryknowes Centre in Cardonald designed a semi
abstract design incorporating local attractions such as the LUV
Cafe in Linthouse, Elderpark and the local shops.
Gable 3. Artist Geralding Greene worked with Elderpark and St
Jeromes Primary Schools to design a gable end as if it still had
windows and people looking out of them. Commission by Hold Your
