Lower Ormeau Road (2010)

The aim of this commission, developed from initial consultations, is to create a cross-community piece of art that will develop new connections between different communities in the area of Ormeau Bridge/Embankment. It should celebrate diversity and new opportunities in the area of the lower Ormeau Road. By creating a positive and iconic piece of public art it will define the gateway to the Ormeau Road area and will link this area with the City Centre.

In previous meetings with representatives from the communities it was agreed to create two pieces of art. The site for the larger art work is located on the Ormeau Road between the towpath and Dromara Street. The smaller art piece will be installed on the other side of the bridge on the grounds of the public library.
