New mural marks Govan Housing Association’s 50th Anniversary
Keep your eye on the Govan Road tenements next to Riverside Hall to see a striking new artwork coming to life, to mark our 50th anniversary.
The artwork is by celebrated street artist Sam Bates – better known as “smug” – and encapsulates the vibrancy of our iconic community and focuses on the future while embracing a proud past. It is being created under the auspices of SWG3 and “Yardworks” – the renowned Glasgow creative hub and arts venue which aims to bring street art to a wider audience. SWG3 carried out a wide-ranging community consultation about what local people would like to see in the mural.
With funding from the Big Lottery, we are delighted to see the ideas and inspirations from the people of Govan coming to life in the mural.
The mural will be launched on 5th August at Riverside Hall.
