Come Discover Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum
At QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY
Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University investigates the Famine and its impact through art. The museum interprets the Famine visually, allowing artists — both those contemporaneous with the Great Hunger and those working today — to explore the impact of the loss of life, the leeching of the land, and the erosions of language and culture. Through its display of outstanding historical and contemporary images, layers of history are peeled back, to uncover aspects of the Famine indecipherable by other means.
DATE: Wednesday, April 18. Meet in the YMCA lobby at 2:15pm to carpool to the museum.
MEMBER COST: Free but sign up at front desk.
