  • Canal buildings mural map (MMIAH project)

A key element of this project will be the installation of a suitably themed mural at a prominent location at the entrance to the canal walkway. The proposed mural at the Canal Harbour at Lock Quay, will be sympathetically designed and enhance the public realm of the area. Its design should take inspiration from the rich maritime and industrial past of the Canal Harbour area. The mural should also reflect the ethos of the MMIAH Project in enhancing people’s knowledge and appreciation of the physical and cultural heritage of the area.

Timeline

The timeline for the completion of the mural is the end of the calendar month of April 2021.

Budget

There is a total budget of €4,000 allocated to the installation of the mural at Lock Quay. This includes the cost of materials and paint as well as the artists’ fee for the completion of the mural.

Materials, such as spray-paint, primer, and necessary ancillary art supplies will be provided by Limerick City and County Council upon the approval of the mural design.

The Heritage Themed Mural at Lock Quay Call for Submissions is now closed for applications.
