Irish Famines in Art


Images of Shattered Lives

Irish Famines in Art presents a look at Irish famines through the eyes of artists using all types of media – from oil paintings to sculpture. Who were these artists so intent on capturing the wretchedness of the time? Who was their intended audience? Did the various pieces have an impact on those who could help alleviate the suffering? This class, taught over two sessions, will also examine current-day memorials intended to keep the country’s tragedy visible as we remember a painful and desolate history.    

2 sessions. Thursday 6:30 – 7:45 pm. November 4 & 11
