Public Art

pontils

Clackmannanshire is indelibly linked with the distinctive public art of Andy Scott, most notably for the Kelpies in nearby Falkirk. The installation of six of his sculptures in such close proximity is an unprecedented concentration of his work.

The sculptures, are constructed mainly of steel using contemporary fabrication techniques. These were designed with the Clackmannanshire community, and reflect what has shaped Clackmannanshire: the river, the woods, the Ochil Hills, its industrial past and vibrant future.

Other international artists and works which have contributed to Clackmannanshire’s informal sculpture trail are Michael Visocchi’s ‘The Pontils’ celebrating Clackmannanshire’s glass heritage, and Rob Mulholland’s ‘Sentinels’ which can be found ‘reflecting’ in Alloa Town Centre.
