The Lord Mayor of Dublin Brendan Carr unveiled the 120 foot long ‘Draw Me Docklands’ mural by the award winning artist and illustrator Chris Judge on Dublin City Council’s Docklands Office, Custom House Quay on Tuesday, 2nd May at 11.00 am.
Chris Judge’s brilliant tribute to Dubliners in Dublin’s Docklands includes 60 unique life-size portraits of people who took part in the #DrawMeDocklands Social Media campaign which was run by Dublin City Council and Business to Arts in autumn 2016. During the campaign people were encouraged to submit selfies using the hashtag #DrawMeDocklands. People sent images of themselves or their friends, which has now evolved into artwork containing 60 characters, spanning 120 feet.
#DrawMeDocklands is a Dublin City Council funded project in collaboration with Business to Arts and the Docklands Arts Fund project. The Docklands Arts Fund is a partnership between Business to Arts and the arts and docklands offices of Dublin City Council to assist business and individuals to work withpromote art and culture in the Docklands area.
