Clackmannanshire Council Online

Public Art

Public Art

In recent years the Council has been involved in commissioning various pieces of public art:

Works by international sculptor Andy Scott

Andy Scott's works located throughout Clackmannanshire include:

The Kelpies are also close by at The Helix in Falkirk.

Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1987 Andy has worked across a diverse range of artistic and creative projects. Public sculpture has been at the forefront of his activities, with dozens of commissions completed for a wide client base including corporate and civic organisations, public housing associations, sports and leisure groups and private clients.

You can view Andy Scott's website for more examples of his work.

Mural on lane from King Street carpark to Drysdale Street

Chosen by competition, the winning design by two local professional artists, Ross Hastie and Michael Corr, references the county’s motto 'Look Aboot Ye' and links this to a painting of a goldcrest; the smallest bird in Scotland, drawing parallels with Clackmannanshire’s status as the ‘Wee County’.

Also, the goldcrest’s Latin name is 'Regulus Regulus', meaning King, and thereby links to the county’s motto which is attributed to King Robert the Bruce. 

View the mural design via our flickr page. Our Living Alloa Project web page is also available.

'Pontils' by Michael Visocchi

The 'Pontils' sculpture represents the glass industry in Clackmannanshire and is situated at Dumyat South roundabout, Tullibody.

Falcon sculpture by Russell Lamb

The bird of prey sculpture was created by Russell Lamb from the Glasgow Sculpture Studios and is situated at Dumyat View roundabout at Tullibody.

'Source' by James Gordon and Susheila Jamieson

This piece of art is themed around the fresh water supplies of the area that were essential for the town's industrial past and is situated at the housing development at Primrose Place next to the Speirs Centre. This art work was commissioned by Kingdom Housing Association. More about the artists can be found via the Jamieson and Gordon website.

Roundels by Sandor Dobany and Glasgow School of Art Students

This project was commissioned by Carronvale Homes in association with the Council, and the roundels were installed at The Grange in Alloa.

Two of the circular mosaics were created by internationally renowned Hungarian porcelain artist, Sandor Dobany. Sandor then tutored second and third year ceramic art students through a design competition to win the chance to create the other three ceramics.

Glass Commission by Elin Isaksson for Clackmannanshire Community Healthcare Centre

Elin Isaksson was commissioned to create a glass sculpture to sit in the grounds of the Clackmannanshire Community Healthcare Centre which opened in 2009.

This piece of public art reflects Clackmannanshire's rich heritage of glass making. Elin was commissioned by NHS Forth Valley and Clackmannanshire Council.
