Ann Lane (formerly of Ballinatona, Millstreet) has spent four years and traveled over 14,000 miles on an odyssey to catalog the country’s main pieces of public art. She said it was her initial encounter with Capall Mór, the ferro-cement over a steel structure, near Tralee, that depicts a Celtic war horse with broken chains around its forelegs, signifying freedom, which inspired her to undertake the task of cataloging the works …
This is from an article in the Irish Examiner today(5th Aug) describing her passion for public art, and her journey to this stage.
She featured on RTE Radio 1 yesterday morning (4th Aug) on the Kathryn Thomas Summer On One show, which can be heard in the podcast at the top of this page. (from 9:13 to 11:10 – starts just before the middle of the audio).
Ann’s passion was featured in an article on the Global Post from September ’09, and it shows some of the wonderful photography she has taken.
Ann Lane’s photographic journal of public art will be published this autumn by Wordwell Books.
