In December 2019 Cathal Mc Carthy was selected by the Town Council of Hochstadt to create a new Public Art Sculpture in Bavaria Germany. This new sculpture will be a socially engaged project exploring themes of peace in our time and the environment. It will engage with young people from Hochstadt and young people from Castlebar in a unique way as their ideas and words will be incorporated into the work.
The sculptor received a warm reception when he proposed his ideas for the sculpture to the members of Hochstadt Town Council in December 2019.
This new sculpture will form part of the Cultural Mile Exhibition which will see major new works created by contemporary artists in Bavaria. The sculpture is due for completion in 2021.
