SPG invite you to take part their Sculpture Trail celebrating Govan’s rich and varied sculptural heritage. The trail starts at Glasgow Science Centre with the wonderful Floating Head by Richard Groom, created in collaboration with Govan’s shipbuilders for Glasgow's Garden Festival, and a triumph of heritage, engineering and sustainable artwork, and newly restored for Doors Open Day.
You will find works showing the legacy of Govan’s great female philanthropists: Isabella Elder, Dinah Pearce, Jane Cossar and Glasgow’s first female Magistrate, Mary Barbour. This tour takes a look at all sides of Govan’s artistic past, Linthouse Portico's links to John Spreull, the first slave owner in Glasgow, and Govan’s War Memorial that provided work for disabled veterans.
SPG has also sited six contemporary works installed specially for the trail. Works by Alex Allan, Deniz Uster, Jack Cheetham, Tiago Rodriguez, Matt Barnes and Esther Gamsu will be sited in exciting locations in Govan.
