Gorbals Boys Public Art, Gorbals, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on a social-themed public sculpture in the Gorbals District of Glasgow, Scotland.

The Gorbals is an area formerly associated with high levels of social deprivation. It is an area on the south bank of the River Clyde which has been transformed in recent years, predominantly via construction of vastly improved housing and other amenities.

The sculpture shown here was unveiled in 2008. It is the work of artist, Liz Peden at cost of GBP40,000. The scene is copied from an iconic photograph taken in the Gorbals by photographer, Oscar Marzaroli in 1963.

The work sits at the corner of Cumberland Street and Queen Elizabeth Gardens and is accessible to all.
