City Centre Mural Trail
Glasgow City Chambers, George Square, G2 1DU
Expanding in scope since the first art work was produced in 2008, the City Centre Mural Trail is having a major impact on Glasgow city centre, rejuvenating streets and revitalising buildings and vacant sites which have become tired, or suffer from environmental blight. The murals create splashes of colour and brighten the urban landscape and have become increasingly popular with residents, local businesses and visitors to the city centre. They help to increase awareness of Glasgow's rich cultural and artistic heritage, as well as strengthening the city's reputation as a warm, inviting and welcoming destination.
The huge range of artwork on display has something to suit all tastes - conservative to radical, quirky to bizarre. Notable highlights include the Hip Hop Marionettes, the Glasgow Tiger, the Spaceman, and our Fellow Glasgow Residents.
Along the way you will hear about the origins of the Mural Trail, and the artists and organisations involved in its development.
Glasgow is proud of its cultural heritage, its local artists and their inspirational, colourful installations that have helped make the City Centre Mural Trail the award winning attraction it has become.
