St. Mochta’s NS, Clonsilla, Dublin 15 intend to commission a public art work/s under the Percent for Art Scheme funded by the Department of Education and Science.
St. Mochta’s school is looking to commission an art piece(s) which is/are reflective of the spirit, diversity and energy of our school. The proposed process must involve artists making new work as a central aspect of the commission and should involve input from pupils and the wider school community. The children were asked to design their idea of an art piece for the school. The dominant themes which arose were sport, music, books, the world, children and the willow tree.
The brief asks the artist to consider:
- The school’s motto
- The diversity and inclusiveness of our school
- The theme our pupils’ chose
- The school’s energy and involvement in a diverse range of disciplines
- The outdoor space specified (see pictures)
- The budget
Budget: €50,000 inclusive of all artists’ fees and costs including installation, VAT, insurance etc.
