ARTS COUNCIL
COLLECTION EXHIBITION

Artwork: Elizabeth Cope Last Picnic on London City Island 2020  Oil on Canvas 185 x 212cm

For Culture night 2023 the Arts Council will once again proudly showcase a selection of works recently added to its extensive Visual Art Collection.

The Arts Council Collection was established in 1962 and now comprises almost 1,350 works of modern and contemporary Irish art. This year we are delighted to once again welcome audiences to the Arts Council buildings on Merrion Square, Dublin to engage with some our most recent acquisitions.

Works by many of Ireland’s leading artists will be shown on the night including pieces by: Elizabeth Cope, Miriam De Búrca, Mollie Douthit, Justin Fitzpatrick, Marie Holohan, Helen Hughes, Catriona Leahy, Jialin Long, Kevin Mooney, Doireann Ni Ghrioghair, Emma Roche, Mark Swords, Amna Walayat and Orla Whelan.

As well as this glimpse into the Arts Council Collection for Culture Night, artworks can be seen all year round throughout the country as part of exhibitions and long term loans in public buildings such as hospitals, universities and schools.
