DFG Architects are collaborating with the Carlow ‘Pure Thinking Community Group’ on their latest project which will result in a new public art installation in the centre of Carlow Town.
Launch for the project takes place Friday 1st July at The Castle Tavern, Castle Street, Carlow.
For more information see www.purethinking.ie or check out our facebook page.
The “WALL R US” project aims to celebrate the importance of our local pubs, as social, cultural & historic settings at the centre of Irish life.
The Pure Thinking Community Group, led by Connie Byrne Hyland, will research, develop & design this project. The group will gather stories, musical influences & photographic references, which will then be used as the basis for a permanent art piece that will be publicly displayed on Castle Street in Carlow town.
The subject for the first stage of this project was in the The Castle Tavern, Castle Street on the 1st July. Many thanks to everyone who made the night such a success. If you have a story to tell, a picture/video to share or with an interest in this Community Project please feel free to drop into the Tavern; submit a comment on this page; visit our Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All contributors will be ambassadors of this project and each story and musical influence will be documented by the Pure Thinking Community Group and represented within this permanent art piece. Your contribution is vital to the success of this project. The art piece will belong to you and will be presented for the greater community to enjoy. ‘The Tavern collection’ CD will be available to purchase on the night, and all donations will be equally distributed to the Carlow Home Care Team and the “WALL R US” project.
We have great hopes for the launch of our permanent art piece and aim to launch 1st October 2011. Watch this space for further updates.
