For the past number of years Longford County Council has pursued an active programme of Public Art Commissioning
This has resulted in the acquisition of a stock of beautiful, varied and imaginative pieces by some of Ireland’s leading sculptors.
Not all of the work commissioned in the area of public art has been three dimensional sculptural pieces. The County Arts Office embarked upon a fascinating and challenging exploration of the interaction between a Town Planner and an experienced practitioner in the public art space which resulted in a fascinating documentary DVD entitled Longford Town Public Art & Planning Project that may be viewed on this site.
Longford County Council continues to commission public art and watch this space for some exciting art in the near future.
