Sample PlaqueA Public Artwork for Nicholas Street, Ross Road, Bride Street and Bride Road, Dublin, Ireland- 2009

Chris Reid completed the permanent public artwork consisting of 21 bronze plaques and a printed book.

The Texts are based on recordings the artist made from 2004 to 2008 with residents and people associated with Nicholas Street, Ross Road, Bride Street, and Bride Road.

This work was commissioned through Dublin City Council's Public Art Programme, arising from the refurbishment of these buildings and funded by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government. They can be viewed at any time.

The map below shows the locations of the plaques which have been installed on the red brick walls of Nicholas Street, Ross Road, Bride Street, and Bride Road. Read artist's statement here »
