List of public art in Dublin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of public art on permanent public display in Dublin, Ireland. The list applies only to works of public art accessible in a public space; it does not include artwork on display inside museums. Public art may include sculptures, statues, monuments, memorials, murals and mosaics.

Public art in Dublin is a significant feature of the cityscape. The city's statues and other monuments have a long history of controversy about their subjects and designs, and a number of formerly prominent monuments have been removed or destroyed. Dublin is particularly well known for nicknaming some of its monuments.[1][2][3][4][5]
