Sculpture Dublin to commission six new sculptures for Dublin

Sculpture Dublin will spearhead the investment of €600,000 in the commissioning of six new sculptures for parks and public spaces across Dublin in the next 18 months.

There will be a permanent structure in each of the city council's five administrative areas and a year-long temporary commission for the O'Connell Plinth outside City Hall. The permanent structures will be in Smithfield, Raheny, Finglas, Ballyfermot and Terenure.

The commissions will be awarded before the end of 2020 and realised in 2021. Five of the six commissions are open competitions and artists will be asked to create a sculptural work in response to the specific context of the selected site. Two of the commissions are participative and will require local involvement in the creation of the work. For the site overlooking North Bull Island in St Anne’s Park, a major permanent land art work is planned. It will be an invited competition.

Sculpture Dublin is an initiative of Dublin City Council Parks and Landscape Services and the City Arts Office. It aims to raise awareness of Dublin’s sculptural heritage and to commission new works in parks and public spaces city-wide.
