Brief Description

Laois County Council is commissioning a permanent public art / sculpture in the centre of Portlaoise, Co. Laois. Portlaoise was unveiled as one of the successful Towns to be allocated funding under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF), as part of Project Ireland 2040 in respect of the development of a new Cultural Quarter in Portlaoise, and also the development of initiatives which will see Portlaoise becoming the first Low Carbon town in Ireland. The work will focus on the historical but also the current cultural context and focus on the creation of an engaging and ‘living’ artwork for all the citizens and visitors to Portlaoise. Consider the relevance of the artwork now and in the future and consider the durability, health and safety and the requirement for a low maintenance artwork. telephone + 353 87 238 9591 https://visualartists.ie/jobs-ops/commissions/per-cent-for-art-commission-new-cultural-quarter-in-portlaoise-laois/
