One of Glasgow’s most iconic buildings has had one of its finest features spruced up. The clock tower and weather vane at the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) have been cleaned, restored and reinstated. Previously coated in stained cream masonry paint and cement repairs, together with vegetation growing out of the Corinthian column bases, the clock tower has undergone an extensive series of conservation repairs. These included replacing stones which were incorrectly bedded during the original construction between 1827 and 1829. Managed by Glasgow Life, GoMA has hosted some 600,000 visitors in the last year, making it Scotland’s most visited modern art gallery and one of the top ten most visited attractions in Scotland in 2015.
