ooMAY - Paint the Town Red


In the top section the Clyde has changed colour to suggest the notion of the "Red Clyde". A famous landmark, the Finnieston Crane supports George Wylie's sculpture of the Paper Boat. Below are portraits of the people of Glasgow who visited the project during the month.

Andrew Hay made a painting, subsequently translated into textile, to illustrate three movements in Glasgow's political life; The unfurling of the Red Flag in George Square in 1917, the folding away of the banner of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders and the unfurling of the 1990 May Day centenary banner.
