The acclaimed famine-art collection finishes its Irish tour in Derry
Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger, the acclaimed Famine art collection, currently on loan from Ireland's Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University, has been touring the island of Ireland this year
To date, more than 85,000 visitors have viewed the 50 artworks both at Dublin Castle and at the West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen. The exhibition will open at the the Cultúrlann on January 18th, 2019 and be on display through March 16th.
As the largest Famine-related art collection in the world, it is fitting that this collection has come to Ireland, and it is also fitting it will end its journey in Derry, the second largest point of departure during Ireland's Great Hunger.
Join us in 2019, to experience the art in the beautiful tSeaneaglais and its accompanying programme of educational, musical and cultural events.
