The Ark – Once Upon a Picture Exhibition 28 Mar – 2 May 2015

March 28, 2015 @ 10:00 am - May 2, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Every artwork has a story to tell! Sometimes worlds cross over and strange things happen – humans take on animal form, objects shrink or grow, people dream enchanted dreams and things are not always as they seem. A free exhibition for ages 4+

Let your imagination run wild as you explore our exhibition of artworks that we think are a little bit mysterious, alluring and perhaps magical. These artworks suggest themes that have fascinated artists, writers, thinkers and dreamers across history. Have fun imagining what the artworks are about and what stories they tell. This exhibition will spark your imagination and get you creating stories of your own!

During your visit to the exhibition, we invite you and your family to relax and spend some time in our cosy corner, reading and listening to fairy tales or you can get creative in our response area writing or drawing your own imagined stories, inspired by the exhibition.

This programme is inspired by W.B. Yeats and his dedication to the preservation, collection and the imagination of Irish fairy tales and Folklore, these themes are reflected within a modern context in many of the programme elements. 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of W.B Yeats’ birth.

Special thanks to Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and Green on Red Gallery for their support on this project.
