Artist Marie Smith returns ‘The Hug’ to Cootehill

During the first lockdown in 2020, Cavan artist Marie Smith made a piece of sculpture for Cootehill Arts Festival.  “The Hug” has since featured on RTE News in “Hugs on Hold” A Year of Pandemic Living and casts of the artwork have been sent all over Ireland and the world.

On Culture Night 2021, Marie will bring the sculpture back to where it all started. She will demonstrate how the artwork is made and will be available to discuss her inspiration, where the sculpture has been sent and how it has been received.
