Fingal Libraries is bringing the Viewpoints Touring Art Exhibition to your local library, as part of the Creative Ireland Programme. The exhibition provides a fun and accessible way to explore art and is primarily aimed at families and children.
Viewpoints is being made available through The Glucksman’s Art Library; an innovative way to share art, based on the principles of creativity, inclusion, and participation. You can view the exhibition as it tours Fingal’s ten libraries from January to June. The tour will end on Saturday 10th June at Cruinniú na nÓg – the annual day of free, creative fun for for children and young people. Creative workshops will take place for children and their families as the exhibition tours each library.
The Glucksman Gallery, in partnership with the UCC School of Law, commissioned seven Irish picture book authors to respond to different themes in 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 County Council is delighted to host this beautiful exhibition which not only tackles complex themes in an accessible way but also celebrates the wealth of talent amongst Irish illustrators.
