The Garnethill Garden Mural is a partnership project between The Glasgow School of Art and St Aloysius College, which commissioned GSA graduate Ida Henrich to create a mural to brighten the lane and celebrate the theme of 'Care for a Common Home', a Jesuit principle and a way of celebrating the common home of Garnethill. Coordinated by GSA Community Engagement, Ida ran a series of workshops with the S3 class at St Aloysius, sharing with them the process of designing, scaling, and painting a mural. She also ran two sessions with the children arts group at Garnethill Multicultural Centre. The first was to develop ideas for the mural around celebrating Garnethill and the second invited the group to take part in painting part of the mural.
Next door is the Glasgow School of Art, an independent art school which has regular exhibitions in the Reid Building which are free and open to the public. Nearby is the CCA, a gallery, cinema and restaurant with a great programme of events and exhibitions. To the south is Sauchiehall Street, one of Glasgow's most famous thoroughfares, boasting a wide variety of retail, entertainment, and cultural destinations.
