Viewpoints touring exhibition is headed to Fingal Libraries!
This spring Viewpoints is touring Fingal Libraries as part of The Art Library initiative.
The Glucksman is delighted that Fingal Libraries is hosting Viewpoints, a touring art exhibition, available through The Art Library. An innovative approach to sharing art and knowledge driven by the principles of creativity, inclusion and participation.
Viewpoints is aimed primarily at families and children and provides a fun and accessible way to explore art. In partnership with the UCC School of Law, The Glucksman commissioned seven Irish picture book authors to respond to different themes within the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Artists Mary Murphy, Róisín Hahessy, Niamh Sharkey, Peter Donnelly, Fatti Burke, Chris Haughton and Chris Judge created seven new illustrations focusing on family and identity, education, creativity and play, justice and the right to be heard, equality, climate change and the environment, and migrants and refugees.
Fingal Libraries is thrilled to host the Viewpoints art exhibition from January to June 2023 as it tours around each library, culminating on 10th June at Cruinniú na nÓg, Creative Ireland’s annual day of free creative activity for children and young adults.
Join them at Malahide Library on Saturday 28th January at 11.00am for the official opening.
Viewpoints is part of The Art Library initiative, a loan collection of artworks for sharing to community hubs across Ireland, and is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
