Public Art In Ireland
Public Art in Ireland is truly an experience. It is possibly the only place in the world where the nicknames of the public art are more entertaining than the art itself. It seems as though it is a national sport to nickname statues and sculptures. Some public art has been so relentlessly mocked the authorities have up and move them out of the public’s sight. Take the poor Anna Livia Millennium Fountain aka Floozy in the Jacuzzi as an example. The nicknames included Floozy in the Jacuzzi, Hoor in the Sewer, Bidet Mulligan and Viagra Falls. In the end, the fountain was disassembled and placed in storage.
