Per Cent for Art commission | Whitegates to Athlone Castle Cycleway link project

Westmeath County Council invites submissions from artists to develop a proposal for new visual artwork for the Whitegates to Athlone Castle Cycleway link project. The cycleway project involves the construction of a 1.5km extension of cycleways, inclusive of a 104m long cycleway bridge over the River Shannon which connects to the 42km Old Rail Trail from Athlone to Mullingar and ultimately forms part of the proposed Galway to Dublin Cycleway.

Artists will be required to respond creatively to public space along the Old Rail Trail at between two and four separate locations which will not only animate the trail but also provide the greenway user with an experience that is intriguing and engaging.The commission is funded under the Per Cent for Art scheme.

Please read the brief for further details about the commission and location.


The total budget for the commission is €110,000 inclusive of VAT.
