The Old & New Easterhouse Mosaic (and everything in between)
Alex Frost (Glasgow Artist)
3.00-4.30pm, Teaching Room, 27 Bute Gardens (entry through number 25)
The sculptor Alex Frost will make a presentation on a selection of his recent public projects, in particular a project that took the celebrated community artwork 'The Easterhouse Mosaic' (1983-2004) as a starting point. This project was the practical implementation over 18 months of ideas relating to the role of art in regeneration and development, cultural heritage versus community art as well as ideas on how to make public sculpture in a post-industrial setting.

His recent exhibitions include 'Tales of the City' at The Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow and 'Soulseekers' at Trinity Museum, New York.
