Fingal County Council Public Art Programme 2017-2021

Fingal County Council is embarking on a new phase of Public Art Commissioning utilising funds generated through the Per Cent for Art Scheme.  Infrastructure 2017 – 2021 is a local, national and international opportunity open to artists from all disciplines.


Infrastructure is offered in 4 strands;

Public Art Awards,


Buildings and Public Spaces Artists Panel

People’s Purchase



Commissions will be awarded by open competition and proposal fees will be paid to shortlisted artists. Selections will be made by panels comprised of artists, curators and public representatives from Fingal’s Public Participation Network and Fingal County Council.


Infrastructure supports artists in 4 principal ways


  • Establishing a series of ambitious Public Art projects to take place throughout the county.

  • Facilitating Co-Produced projects, which encourage active engagement between artists,community partners and local hosts.

  • Purchasing artworks for a variety of buildings used by communities in Fingal, giving the opportunity for citizens to actively select contemporary artworks for their individual active spaces.

  • Commissioning bold new artworks for the built environment and public spaces.


Infrastructure has been developed by Caroline Cowley, Fingal County Council’s Public

Art Co-ordinator and Curator Aisling Prior.
