Public Art Collection
Dublin City Council’s public art collection consists of public sculpture and statues in the public realm and other artworks on display in its offices.
Dublin City Council is developing a Public Art Register which, when complete, will list information about the sculpture, statues and artworks in the public realm which are in its ownership or care. It is hoped in time to transform this into an illustrated catalogue available online.
Part of this work has been completed in a collaborative project with Parks and Landscape Services in a project titled Art in Parks. The free, Art in Parks Guide tells the story behind the famous sculpture, the artist and the parks in which they are located.
Further information on past public art commissions and projects from Dublin City Council, as well as other authorities, can be found on the internet archive www.publicarts.ie
