'Mornings at the Museum' Summer Wrap-Up

Thu Sep 3rd, 2015
Okay, so it wasn’t the best of summers in Ireland weather-wise, but there was plenty of enjoyable creative activity for families happening indoors at IMMA. Mornings at the Museum, the hour-long family workshop, ran on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, starting during IMMA’s festival SUMMER RISING in June, and finishing during national Heritage Week at the end of August. In the company of IMMA staff, children and grown-ups had an opportunity to experience exhibitions and explore ideas, materials and processes while making their own artworks. What a range of exhibitions and artworks we got to visit: Kenneth Hall’s works in the IMMA Collection exhibition Fragments, the Midcentury Studio photos in Stan Douglas’s Mise en Scène, the colourful oil paintings and delicate leporellos of Etel Adnan, and the revolutionary forms, shapes and letters in El Lissitzky’s work. Take a look at some of the fun we had at this summer’s Mornings at the Museum. Then below, find an outline of more great family events happening at IMMA as autumn arrives and the school year begins.
