Wilde about our new Guide at Merrion Square Park

Dublin City Council has created a smartphone multilingual guide to one of its most popular sculptures – Oscar Wilde in Merrion Square Park, Dublin 2.

The guide comprises of an audio, text and video explanation of the artwork with the aim to provide detailed information on the art and the sculptor Danny Osborne.  The audio and text is available in Irish, English, French, Chinese and Spanish and the video is available in English.   Visitors to the sculpture may access this information using a QR (Quick Response) code indicated on a new sign, erected yesterday and adjacent to the artwork, or by visiting our website www.DublinArtinParks.ie .

“Our Parks and Landscapes Services and Arts Office have introduced this pilot project with the hope of expanding art and parks interpretation guides in traditional and digital forms over the coming years. We want locals and visitors to obtain a greater understanding and relationship with our city resources”, said Ruairí O’Cuiv, Public Art Manager, Dublin City Council.

Feedback from users is welcome and comments can be made to parks@dublincity.ie  .
