Brief Description

Dublin City Council and Fáilte Ireland have initiated this commission to attract visitors to explore the Dubline tourist trail from High Street to Kilmainham and to explore the rich history and heritage of the Liberties while reflecting on the vibrant communities of residents, businesses and industry along the route. This invitation is intended to give scope for creative and imaginative responses to the Brief. The commissioned artwork or artworks will have to be in place or available on a permanent basis or for at least ten years. This leaves opportunity for visual art and sculptural response to the invitation but also gives scope to provide artworks through digital media platforms. The proposal must also take into consideration the issue of Health and Safety and in particular avoid proposals which could be considered a ’slip or trip’ hazard.
