Sculptor John Mckenna was commissioned to create a striking piece of public art for Port Glasgow. The design was selected by public vote but was delayed several times due to the pandemic and site issues.The Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow consists of two colossal stainless steel figures. The 33-foot-tall figures, which have a combined weight of 14 tonnes, pay tribute to those who worked in the shipyards of Port Glasgow and Inverclyde and made the area world famous for shipbuilding. The artwork is thought to be the largest sculptural figure of a shipbuilder in the UK and one of the biggest of its kind in Western Europe.
