Public Art

The Department of the Environment and Local Government's "Per Cent for Art" Scheme encourages Local Authorities throughout Ireland to commission artists to create work for coinciding with new capital or infrastructure projects.

The amount of commission is approximately 1% of the overall project, subject to an upper limit of €63,500 approx. Waterford City and County Council is, at present, undertaking a Public Art Programme that is central to the objectives of the City and County Council's Planning and Development Policy.
