The Rise and Fall of Public Art is an exciting new programme that explores how Northern Ireland has used public art to address our history of conflict.
Ever seen a piece of public art and thought you could do better than that?
Ever been impressed when looking at a public sculpture?
Ever questioned the art that appears in public spaces around you?
Led by the Linen Hall Library, this online programme is an educational yet light hearted look at what goes into commissioning a piece of public art.
