The last 25 years has seen a noticeable increase in the number of permanent public sculptures in our towns, housing estates and roadways.

How do these pieces get commissioned? Who is this art for? Who are the artists?

In this engaging documentary Joe Duffy explores the colourful and controversial area of public art. Joe visits Dublin and beyond to find out what these sculptures mean to the Irish public, meets the artists who created them and the decision makers behind the commissioning process.

Some of the best loved and less loved pieces of public sculpture feature in the programme, including Dublin’s most famous piece, the ‘Anna Livia’, as she makes a dramatic return to the banks of the River Liffey.
