As a museum one of IMMA’s very important and exciting jobs is collecting and taking care of objects. These objects can be artworks; they can also be instructions, letters, photographs, postcards, books, and many other interesting things. You can learn more about what IMMA collects and archives in the exhibition IMMA Archive:1990s, From the Edge to the Centre.
At IMMA, we use lots of boxes of different shapes and materials to keep our objects and collections organised and safe. As part of Ireland’s Culture Night 2020, we would like to invite you to join us in some creative activity and make boxes for your own special objects and collections.
What you will need:
Now, let’s get to work:
Now you can have fun decorating your box and organising your collection, experiment with bigger or smaller sheets of card to create different size boxes for all your collections and objects.
Take a photograph of your creation when you’re finished! And please, share your results, your experiments, and artworks with the hashtag #ExploreratHome
