Visit Poolbeg Yacht and Boat Club on Culture Night to learn about a new public art project ‘Liffey Love’ by artist Rhona Byrne, commissioned by Dublin City Council.
Come on a journey up the River Liffey on The Liffey Ferry, the oldest ferry in Ireland, with artist Rhona Byrne and Jimmy Murray of the Irish Nautical Trust.
Rhona is working with Irish Nautical Trust on the Liffey Sweeper to collect plastic waste from the River Liffey and repurposing it to create a social sculpture in the form of love seats placed on the North Campshires of the River in early 2024. Liffey Love is an art project that considers connection and what it means to love our city, rethink materials of everyday life and embrace sustainable circular practices to nurture a sense of collective civic engagement.
Come along to hear about the origins and processes of this exciting art project.
