Alloa

Andy Scott’s third sculpture for Clackmannanshire emulates Alloa’s regeneration, was installed on Station Square prior to the Stirling-Alloa-Kincardine railway opening in May 2008.

The sculpture features two figures – an adult wearing a flat cap and a youngster, and creates a focal point at the end of the boulevard.

The figures symbolise the working past of the town, through the adult figure, and the potential future for the town and area, personified by the child. The child in essence rises from the industrial past and looks towards the town.

Andy often incorporates local input in his creations and on this project there were design contributions from St Mungo’s and St Serf’s Primary Schools, as well as Bowmar Community House. A group from the Community House visited Andy’s workshop in Glasgow last year, where they got to see him in action.
