Two Public Art Commissions: Ballina, Co Mayo

Deadline: October 17, 2011

Public Art Commissions: Ballina, Co Mayo 

Commission 1 – Ballina Arts Centre – Budget €20,000

Commission 2 – Ballina Riverside Walkway – Budget €35,000

Mayo County Council invites artists to develop proposals for two new commissions. The first is for a permanent wall based, suspended or window mounted internal artwork in the foyer of the newly developed Ballina Arts Centre. All art forms will be considered though the outcome is assumed to be permanent. 

A second commission is for the new nearby Riverside Walkway. It is envisaged that the artwork for the Walkway will be sculptural due to the nature of the proposed site and the fact that North East Mayo has very few examples of sculptural work.

Artists can apply for either or both commissions. 

For a copy of the artist’s briefs containing full details of the commissions and application process please download them from the Mayo County Council website or contact:

Gaynor Seville, Public Art Co-ordinator, Mayo County Council, [email protected]

Tel: 094 904 7561

This is a 1 stage open application process, deadline for all applications is Monday 17th October.
