A real-time digital exhibition that puts you in the frame of your own masterpiece on a grand scale as we project your portrait or landscape onto the historical Merrion Square façade. For kids & adults alike, join in and have your picture taken & mirrored on the walls in the style of Claude Monet, Mainie Jellett or other masters. Be our muse and take part in this fun digital experience inspired by Irish, French & European chefs-d’oeuvre from the NGI collection & accompanied by Dj sets! From anywhere in Ireland, France & beyond you can view the live projection on our Facebook Live & participate by sending your landscape photo in advance.
