The Temple Bar area of Dublin lies just on the south bank of the River Liffey, which divides the city. This small, historical, section of Dublin still preserves its medieval street pattern and is now the arts center of Dublin by day, with over a dozen cultural institutions, and raucous, party central at night, attracting mainly tourists on the weekends who spill out into the streets from the area’s many pubs.
Paying homage to these two worlds of Temple Bar is The Rockarchive Gallery’s ‘Wall of Fame.’ The Wall of Fame is a permanent outdoor exhibition celebrating twelve of Ireland’s musical heroes, chosen because of their influence on Irish and world music. The artists represented are: Luke Kelly, Phil Lynott, Sinéad O’Conner, Bob Geldoff, Christy Moore, Rory Gallagher, Paul Brady, Shane Magowen, Van Morrisson, The Undertones and U2. Each of the twelve has a window devoted to them, framing a large photo. The resulting massive gallery is backlit at night and adds a welcome nighttime feature to Dublin’s popular Temple Bar area.
