The Yeats Open Air Gallery is 24 hour, permanent, outdoor, free public art gallery with 5 art installations on Wine st, Sligo.
Each artwork is inspired by a poem by W.B. Yeats and a collaboration between an internationally well known figure who has expressed an appreciation of Yeats and an established Artist. The artist for each piece will produce a piece of art to reflect the interpretation of the poem chosen by the notable figure.
The pieces will be securely fixed to the outside facade of five premises with protective glass and will be illuminated for night time viewing. It is planned to erect 5 pieces of art.
The first art piece was unveiled on June 11th 2016 at Pollexfen House, Wine st.
To celebrate their 50th anniversary Sligo Credit Union have funded this project to create a legacy art installation for the public in their local community.
