Artists are advancing the completion of new artworks to accompany the new public signage as part of Failite Ireland’s Destination Towns funding
Five artists have been commissioned through Fingal County Council’s Public Art Panel and were asked to respond to the local environment and the local and visitor experience of the St Patrick’s Heritage and Art Trail.
The new works will form a long-term outdoor exhibition along the trail and the arts team are working with the Skerries Autism Friendly Town Network on an initiative that aims to animate the artworks for the neuro diverse community through workshops and the development of an online/physical handbook.
Selected artists include Atsushi Kaga, Liliane Puthod, Mary Conroy, Marie Farrington and Bennie Reilly. And I am very pleased to say that the works will be in place this quarter.
