About the Commissions
Between July 2020 and April 2022 Sculpture Dublin commissioned six sculptures for the city – a permanent sculpture in each of the Dublin City Council Administrative Areas and a temporary sculpture for the O’Connell Plinth outside City Hall.
Five of the six commissions were open competitions and invited artists to propose ideas in response to the specific context of the selected site.
Two of the commissions were ‘participative’ and required local involvement in the creation of the work.
For the site overlooking North Bull Island in St Anne’s Park, a land art commission is planned. It will be completed in 2023.
