    As part of the Fingal 2016 Centenary Programme, Fingal County Council’s Arts Office is working in partnership with Fingal Curator Cleo Fagan, founder of Superprojects*, to provide a unique arts-in-education initiative for two post-primary schools in Fingal.  The project explores the multiple layers of meaning and contexts associated with the 1916 Easter Rising and the commemorations in 2016.  The project links history and the everyday, bringing awareness to the influence of individuals, collectives and our material environment on social and political changes, past and present.  (image: Ruth Lyons, Pilot Light, 2015)

    Artist Stories / Patrick Scott Read more

    28.10.2013

    Born in Kilbrittan, Co Cork, in 1921, Patrick Scott has exhibited extensively both in Ireland and internationally. Patrick Scott works in a disciplined, simple yet individualistic manner. He studied architecture at University College Dublin and after graduation in 1945 worked with the architect Michael Scott. His training in architecture is reflected in his strict use of formal yet distinctive symbols. He has devoted himself fully to painting since 1960. Scott travelled extensively in China and Japan, and his interest in oriental art is evident in his work, expressed by the simplicity of geometric forms, the minimal use of colour, and a characteristic use of line. In July 2007, Scott, who is a founding member of Aosdána, was conferred with the title of Saoi, the highest honour that can be bestowed upon an Irish artist.

    The Per Cent for Art Scheme allows for a percentage cost of a capital Project of a capital project to be used for the commissioning of an art project.

    In 1986 the Department of the Environment adopted this scheme and it was initially called “The Artist Embellishment Scheme” and provided the opportunity for Local Authorities to commission permanent sculptural works. Since a review of the scheme, which has since extended to all Government Department with construction budget, the scope of the artwork commissioned under the scheme has also expanded.
