WHAT ON EARTH?
A PUBLIC ARTS PROJECT IN AID OF GOAL.
What On Earth is a unique collection of 100 resin globe sculptures which are being painted and decorated by some of Ireland’s top artists and celebrities. They will then be put on public display to form a series of Public Art Exhibition’s which will tour a number of key cities on the island of Ireland, in the Autumn of 2018 before being auctioned off in November ‘18 to raise valuable funds for GOAL enabling us to continue our work to ease the plight of some of the most vulnerable people in the world.
I am delighted to share with you the truly breathtaking artworks that have been created for the GOAL – What On Earth? project, generously supported by Mickey O’Rourke.
To see all 100 of these incredible globes in one place, created by some of the top artistic talents from Ireland and farther afield, is truly wonderful, and an opportunity you simply should not miss.
More inspiring still is the generosity of these artists and patrons to contribute their time and talents in support of the poorest and most vulnerable communities around the world that GOAL supports.
This collaboration, between artists at the top of their field, and GOAL, a renowned humanitarian response agency, demonstrates the important impact possible when we work together to shine a light on the issues we face as a global society.
From hunger to drought, conflict and disease, all areas of GOAL’s programmes are represented within this collection and their eventual auctioning will raise critical funds to enable these programmes to continue.
The collection of globes will be on a road trip to nine major locations around Ireland, running to November 2018. The exhibitions will allow the public and interested buyers to appreciate and enjoy the many distinctive design styles of the globes, while immersing themselves in each of their respective themes.
The variety and scope of the designs also ensure that there is a globe to suit every taste and location, and we expect huge interest from buyers when the online and live auctions open in late November.
We sincerely hope that you will consider making a bid to secure your favourite piece for your organisation, venue or home. In return, you will be making a priceless contribution to GOAL’s work alongside marginalised communities around the world.
