On Wednesday 10th October between 7 and 9pm the community is invited to come along to the Barras Art and Design complex at 54 Calton Entry, Glasgow G40 2SB to see models/maquettes of the three final designs for the memorial to An Gorta Mór which will be erected in front of St Mary of the Assumption Church in Abercromby Street, Calton. These are the final three designs from which the final design will be chosen.
The models will be available to view over the two hours and the sculptors will be there to discuss their work. The three sculptors will be saying a few words around 7.30pm so come along by then if you want to hear their views on the concept/vision they have tried to incorporate in their design.
There will be an opportunity to indicate your views/preferences in the form of a closed container in front of each sculpture in which you can put a card with either a few words or just blank to indicate that it is your preferred model. The committee will take the views of the community into account when making the final selection. The selection will be made and announced in November.
This is a very exciting time in the project and we want as many people as possible to have their say.
Thank you for all your support so far and remember We are Building It!
