  • Sculpture in Context at the Harold

    Created 2008-10-10 by Jackie Ball

    Location: Sub-urban - Co. Dublin

    Duration: 2008-10-10 to 2009-04-01

Project Outline

For this years residency with the two 4th classes we are creating our own Sculpture in Context at the Harold.

Sculpture in Context ran for the seventh year in the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin. The sculptures are displayed throughout the gardens and glasshouses. All the artwork is site specific -the artist has chosen where exactly in the gardens their sculpture will be placed. A lot of the pieces will have been created specially for this exhibition in the Botanics.
This is a chance for the two classes to see a diverse range of sculptures both large and small created by Irish and International artists and set in a very beautiful Dublin garden.

After visiting the exhibition the children will go back to school and look at their own landscape in a different way and then design and create something unique to enhance their own surroundings. They will recycle, use tools and experiment with a variety of mediums. They will work in groups to design and create permanent sculptures for the grounds of their school.
