Windows Project will see students' work illuminate onto O’Connell Street in Waterford in interesting and visual ways
The Windows Project, a partnership between Garter Lane Gallery and the BA (Hons) in Visual Art course at WIT has given students the opportunity to exhibit their lens-based artworks.
Students on the four-year honours degree course will present their moving image work as part of this project on Monday 22, Wednesday 24, and Friday 26 February between 6.30-8.30pm through the windows of No.5 O’Connell Street (weather dependent).
The project’s origins are rooted in Garter Lane embarking on experimental and creative ways to bring artworks to the public in response to the pandemic and ongoing challenges that are happening as a result.
Course leader on the Visual Art course, Susan Connolly says of the event “with so many of our natural viewing experiences of art now on pause the students' work will illuminate onto O’Connell Street in interesting and visual ways. This is a great opportunity for WIT visual art students to bring their work to new audiences in these unprecedented times.”
