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

The 'Pontils' sculpture represents the glass industry in Clackmannanshire and is situated at Dumyat South roundabout, Tullibody.
The bird of prey sculpture was created by Russell Lamb from the Glasgow Sculpture Studios and is situated at Dumyat View roundabout at Tullibody.
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 new 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 following link: http://www.rachan.co.uk/content/news.htm
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.
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.
