09 Oct The Kilkenny Catwalk 2021 Art Trail
The Kilkenny Catwalk 2021 art trail featuring 21 magnificent cat sculptures will follow a route similar to the one indicated above. Visitors will be invited to follow the trail on the official Kilkenny Catwalk Trail App and find sculptures that will be located in Kilkenny’s beautiful public spaces many of which are attached to the heritage buildings around the city. The trail is designed to immerse people in Kilkenny’s rich heritage while at the same time supporting our local Tourism and Hospitality businesses in their re-opening efforts. At the conclusion of the project, all artwork will be auctioned to raise funds for the refurbishment of the St Marys Almshouse in Kilkenny.
This project is a partnership between Kilkenny Civic Trust and Kilkenny County Council and was created by The Art of Tourism who specialise in the delivery of public art trails. The Kilkenny Catwalk Art Trail can be engaged with outdoors, whilst adhering to physical distancing requirements, regardless of restrictions. It provides creative work for mainly local artists and gives local businesses the knock-on benefits of visitors being attracted to Kilkenny to view the new creative and colourful trail.
The trail goes live from Kilkenny Day 2021 to Easter 2022 and people from all over Ireland are invited to get outdoors, follow the trail and enjoy a fun, bright and engaging activity.
