The Big Launch in Govan

If you are nearby on 20th July please do come and join us to celebrate the completion of sculpture projects by myself and t s Beall at Govan Riverside. In total, 15 pieces of sculpture will be launched that day as well as the official opening of Harland Way - the walkway named by the Riverside Youth Club as part of the overall artwork project.

Also launched that day will be the excellent Govan FairWay project - this is a collaboration between the Govan Showpeople, Fablevision, Frank Miller and Tam McGarvey.

Some of you may be aware of the growing community pressure in Govan for the Glasgow City Council to support a community-led development vision for Water Row/Govan Riverside - this week saw the launch of the web campaign Water Row - and this group will also be a part of the Big Launch even on 20th July 

The Water Row website is here - more on this coming in a future post
