The Per Cent for Art Commission scheme is a unique opportunity for national and international artists to develop a proposal for a Wicklow County Council regarding the linear walkway beginning at the Fran O’Toole Bridge in Bray, Co. Wicklow.
This commission presents a challenging and exciting opportunity to deliver a new site-specific artwork. We are seeking proposals for an imaginative, contemporary work to engage the public, sited within a new civic amenity that has been developed as part of the Flood Defence Scheme.
The budget available to the successful artist or team for the project will be €65,000.
Proposals are due on 9 February 2018.
The selection process will take the form of a one stage competition.
There will be a site visit on 12 January 2018 from 11am until 12pm, followed by a meeting in Bray Municipal Buildings from 12.15pm to 1.15pm. This meeting will give interested parties an opportunity to visit the site and ask questions to a selection of Wicklow County Council staff and the curators, Jennie Guy and Eilís Lavelle, who are project managing the commission on behalf of the County Council.
