New exhibition at Arklow Library
ARKLOW Library will present a new exhibition showcasing works by UCD Landscape Architecture Masters Studio.
‘Arklow through the eyes of strangers’ will run as part of Heritage Week from August 9 to 31 and will take place in two parts comprising film, photographs and plans.
Students of UCD Landscape Architecture have been exploring Arklow and its surroundings and are inviting members of the local community to join them on a unique visual voyage around town and to reflect on their response to it.
They also hope to see plenty of interested Arklow residents to add to their discussions by attending a talk, a walk and a tea party during Heritage Week.
Part 1 of the event will open on August 9 at 6 p.m. and will see an exhibition of 30 large format photographs of Arklow and films of the students’ discoveries.
The second half of the project will open on August 16 at 6 p.m. and will be a showcase of drawings, plans, sketches, maps and notebooks prepared by the students in response to the town.
Topics include the re-thinking of Main Street, What makes a Town Centre? Bring Back the Beaches!, Loving Central Park (The Marsh), Why can’t I cycle to school?, 1000 Trees (for Arklow’s Other Residents) and Memories of Arklow.
On Thursday, August 21 at 4 p.m. Leila’s Tea Party will take a look back at old times and the students will be present to discuss their work on August 23 from 6 - 8 p.m.
