University College Cork, Main Entrance on Western Road, Cork City, Cork,
Ms Ann O'Leary
Set in an award-winning building at University College Cork, the Lewis Glucksman Gallery is a cultural and educational institution that promotes the research, creation and exploration of the visual arts.
Located at University College Cork’s main entrance on Western Road, this 2000m² landmark building includes three floors of display spaces, lecture facilities, a riverside restaurant and gallery shop.
The Lewis Glucksman Gallery places education at the heart of its activities with a wide range of art workshops, film screenings, seminars, lecture series and gallery tours on offer throughout the year that explore the artistic programme in greater depth.
A special programme, supporting the national curriculum, is available for schools. Another key objective is to introduce children to a university setting at an early age, encouraging them to view third-level education as an accessible and desirable prospect.
The Glucksman has received numerous awards including Best Public Building in Ireland from the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, a RIBA award, a UK Civic Trust award, and was shortlisted for the 2005 Stirling Prize.
