Glasgow - City of Sculpture
By Gary Nisbet
Jake Harvey

A student of Environmental Art at GSA in the late 1980s, he successfully campaigned for the rescue and relocation of a condemned sandstone drinking fountain at the junction of Crown Street and Cathcart Road (built 1889), and devised a scheme of relief panels to fill its redundant water basins.

These illustrate aspects of the area's former industries.

The fountain was relocated to a site opposite the Citizen's Theatre, Gorbals Street, in 1990, although without its ball finial.

Harvey is represented in the collection of GMAG by Nocturnal Landscape, an abstract work in forged steel (1980).
