Mayo County Council invites submissions for a public art project at the new Castlebar Pool site, County Mayo. The funding for this project has been provided by the Percent for Art Scheme through the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and Mayo County Council.
This is an exciting opportunity for an artist to create new work at an impressive, innovative development in the county town, close to Lough Lannagh. Two adjoining buildings will be home to the pool, a 25m swimming pool plus a children’s pool, and a National Outdoor Pursuits Academy. As the development is still under construction, due to complete at the end of 2017, there is scope to include any permanent work/s as the building is being completed and avail of the potential to get help and support from the construction workers and architect who will be on site during installation.
