Kilmarnock car park shows its true colours
April 18 2012Brighten Scotland competition to spruce up the country’s most dour spaces, which Urban Realm helped judge.
Foregate car park emerged as the unanimous winner of this hunt - resulting in its steel artwork, originally created by Jack F. Sloane back in the 1990s, being carted off to Highland Galvanizers Cumbernauld base for its colourful re-vamp
Previously the piece had sat largely unnoticed perfectly camouflaged as it was against a grey backdrop. Now it stands out as an eye-catching work in its own right to users of the neighbouring bus station and shopping centre.
Geoff Crowley, Managing Director of Highland, said: “This is exactly the kind of impression we hoped Brighten Scotland would make – there’s no need for towns to be grey and dreary, especially when we so often have weather to match.
“A bit of colour can make a real difference to our surroundings and when the process means no maintenance is required to keep structures looking bright and corrosion free, it should be a no-brainer really.”
