Description

This week will see the completion of the wonderful mosaicsin Roystonhill Spire Park.

Artist Jane McInally worked with local people of all ages, researching the history of the area for inspiration in creating the mosaics. There will be many local features that folk recognise from the past and present: including the Garngad Steamie, Tennant’s Stalk, St.Joseph’s House, the Monkland Canal and the M8 motorway. Thanks also to Jane for creating a colouring book which RDT distributed along with coloured-pencils to local schoolchildren last Christmas – still available as a FREE download here: https://www.roystonhillspire.org/colouring-book/

The Spire Park public art and heritage project is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund Scotland and Rosemount Workspace Ltd.
