Back in 2011 and 2012, a new piece of public art was installed in the Broomy, ‘The Broomhill Wall Wrap’. The piece consisted of 5 vinyl images of old Greenock with frames, heat-pasted on to a white wall leading up the hill.
Watch this video about the idea, installation and resident’s reactions.
It was much-loved by many members of the local community, but unfortunately, now in 2016 the pictures have mostly peeled off and the while has been left slightly grubby, and with no artwork. This may haven been due to vandalism, or just the weathering of time.
We’d love to see another piece of public art here, which the residents can enjoy once again. Although the last piece was great, and used some innovative technologies, we hope to use materials which may prove a little more longer-lasting for any future plans.
