Urban Union, the developer involved in the £90 million regeneration of Laurieston, has appointed artist Peter McCaughey to lead a five-year project called 'Art and Living: Laurieston'.
Peter's plan features 20 ideas for the use of art in Laurieston area of the Gorbals.
Peter, a lecturer in the Sculpture and Environmental Art department at Glasgow School of Art, said: "This exciting project is one of the largest artist-led commissions of public artwork in Glasgow in recent years.
"We want to take the memories and stories collected by the people of Laurieston over decades and incorporate them into the fabric of the new development, as well as bringing to life ideas from workshops with community groups, local historians, artists and individuals."
The blueprint includes creating a sculpture play area for children, capitalising on the "oral tradition" of the area, marking historic sites with thought-provoking signage and using a VW camper van as a mobile studio which will be on site as the 800-home development takes shape.
Laurieston is one of eight Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRA) in Glasgow.
The £90m initiative will deliver a major boost for the city, creating jobs and delivering new homes and community facilities.
Janice Belshaw, project manager at Urban Union, said: "Peter's appointment marks another milestone in the Laurieston project.
"Our aim is to create a new community in this part of Glasgow, and art plays a key role in bringing that vision to life.
"Urban Union is committed to involving the local community, using local workers and local suppliers to create growth and employment opportunities.
"Peter's understanding of the area, the people and how art can transform a community makes him the perfect choice for this role."
The Art and Living: Laurieston plan will be available to view at the Citizens Theatre daily until Sunday, October 6, from 10am to 6pm.
The first phase of the Laurieston TRA project is being financed by Glasgow City Council, the Scottish Government and New Gorbals Housing Association.
