Little Museum of Dublin, 16 – 25 January 2016

The Leinster Printmaking Studio, Clane, Co Kildare, with support from the Kildare County Council Arts and Library Services are launching their year-long programme of exhibitions and workshops in the Little Museum of Dublin, on Saturday 16 January 2016 at 5.00p.m. Fifty Printmakers from eight Printmaking Studios around Ireland have accepted an invitation to participate in the project, which aims to create awareness of little known events or incidents during or around the time of the Easter Rising in 1916.

Beginning with the exhibition in the Little Museum of Dublin, St Stephen’s Green, which runs from the 16 – 25 January, the project will tour libraries and other venues in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow, Cork, Galway and Donegal during the year. In most venues the exhibition will be accompanied by a workshop for adults and/or children. (See www.littlestorieslittleprints.com)

The project is also being supported by Dublin City Public Libraries.
