Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

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.
