‘Viewpoints’ is a pioneering exhibition that explores the potent realm of art as a place for young people to develop and understand their rights. Seven world renowned Irish picture book artists were commissioned by the Glucksman to respond to different themes in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The touring exhibition features work by artists Fatti Burke, Peter Donnelly, Chris Judge, Roisín Hahessy, Chris Haughton, Mary Murphy, and Niamh Sharkey.
Prints will be displayed in the Cornstore Mall as well as being hung in classrooms in primary and secondary schools throughout County Galway.
