‘THE GOLDEN BANDSTAND – Sculpture’ Inaugural Launch Event

Throwback to the recent launch of ‘THE GOLDEN BANDSTAND – Sculpture’ by artist Garrett Phelan that took place two weeks ago!


As part of ‘…the lives we live’ Grangegorman Public Art, this stunning artwork is now a proud testament to our vibrant community and its ever-evolving story.


The event was a resounding success, with Paul’s Third Class students from Dublin 7 Educate Together National School having the honour of being the first official performers in the space. They were followed by the mesmerising Sean Hession ‘Frankly Sinatra’ and the energetic Clash Jam Wallop. GDA CEO Ger Casey, Interim TU Dublin President John Doran and Prof. Ciarán Benson opened the event.


Garrett Phelan, artist behind the artwork said at the launch: ‘THE GOLDEN BANDSTAND – Sculpture’ connects the transformation of the Grangegorman site as a centre for new models for creative education and community activity. I have created the sculpture to respectfully acknowledge the past, fully embrace the present and act as a positive contemporary work of art for creative engagement and collective escapism into the future for everyone.”


A heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined us on this special day and to all those who had a hand in the sculpture successfully coming to fruition!
