Motherwell town centre improvements complete
6274, a public art commissioning agency, has completed the redevelopment of four dilapidated pedestrian underpasses in Motherwell for North Lanarkshire Council.

The revamp was designed to transform the intimidating and poorly lit environments into something more welcoming for shoppers negotiating their through the town centre.

To achieve this photographers from the Glasgow School of Art were brought on board alongside enthusiastic locals to produce a series of photographic images which could then be applied to individual tiles in order to produce permanent glazed reproductions.

Each underpass boasts its own theme from collages of colourful mug shots to a series of postcard images of iconic world locales, framed paintings and Motherwell’s relationship with the river Clyde.
