Oxford Street In Belfast - Dreams By Rita Duffy

Dreams consists of forty large metal panels in a grid formation, which is etched with portraits of a group of children.

The centre of each section, formed in glass and back-lit, glow at night holding the dreams of 9,000 local children.

The project fuses together a strong sense of our metal crafting heritage and the spirit of our children's ability to dream.

Rita is one of Ireland's foremost artists having exhibited widely internationally.

Her recent work Banquet was displayed in the Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast and Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin. Her work features in public and private collections in Ireland, USA and Europe. Rita is currently working on a public artwork for O'Connell Street, Dublin.
