We are fortunate to have one of the most important corporate art collections of Irish and International contemporary art in Dublin. Included in the collection is a new piece “The First Invasion” by Gabhann Dunne. Sarah Cloonan, Senior Associate in Investment Funds, tells us why she has chosen this piece:
“This is by far my favourite painting in the building. Earlier this year, staff were given the opportunity to select a piece of art for the office and this was the winning piece. I love the colour palette used by Gabhann Dunne and find it really soothing. It’s nice to have pieces like this in the office as they not only serve as a talking point but also help to create a nice atmosphere in the building. I’d happily hang it in my own home!”
Support of the visual arts is a large part of our CSR strategy and we are a long-time supporter of “Business to Arts”, whose aim is to broker, enable and support creative partnerships between business and the arts.
We are also proud to sponsor the Royal Hibernian Academy’s (RHA) art education programme, which works with three schools in our local Ringsend area and allows children to learn about and interact with art.
