Mapping Memories –
The George Wyllie Art Trail
Help create a digital map of George Wyllie’s artworks to coincide with his centenary year in 2021.
When George began his career as an artist at the age of 52, when most people are contemplating retirement, he became enormously prolific. His ‘out and about’ approach to art took him across Scotland and beyond. There are hundreds of sculptures, installations and artworks that could feature on this art trail and we expect, with the help of the public, to find many more.
This project will map permanent public sculptures and works in public collections, the project will feature temporary works that now only exist in archive photos and as memories, including his best-known works, The Straw Locomotive and The Paper Boat.
