Munster Technological University Arts Office is delighted to present the MTU Art Collection Artists Profile Series, launching for Culture Night 2021, 17th September 2021 on facebook.com/MTUArtsOffice
MTU, an arts rich university, celebrates and explores its Art Collection through a new series of insightful video profiles made with some of the artists recently added to the Collection. Established over 30 years ago, the Art Collection now includes over 600 artworks, focusing on artists graduating from the MTU Crawford College of Art & Design. This first group of profiles introduces artworks added to the Collection in 2019, all by graduates of Fine Art at MTU Crawford College of Art & Design, and includes Paul Connell, Orla O’Byrne, Paul McQuillan, Niamh Swanton, Luke Hickey, Katie Shoer, Allanah Dennehy, Síofra Holyland, and Sinéad Barrett.
The MTU Art Collection Artists Profile Series will be developed as a record and as a resource, introducing artists and their works in the Collection, and sharing insights into the concepts and techniques they were examining.
The MTU Art Collection, managed by MTU Arts Office, is displayed in locations across the campuses of MTU where it can be enjoyed by students, staff, and the public. It is also available for online reference as a Special Collection in the MTU Library website, and in a dedicated section of the MTU Arts website arts.mtu.ie
