Per Cent for Art Commissions

The Per Cent for Art Commission scheme invites proposals for artwork for the linear walkway beginning at the Fran O’Toole Bridge, Bray.

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.
