About this event

The Museum is delighted to introduce a new exhibition of Irish label art from the 1890s to the 1990s. Included are vibrant examples of labels for minerals, beers, whiskies, hotels, linens, groceries, hotels, pharmacies, matches, and policital causes.

The important part of Ireland’s material culture has been overlooked and this will be the first exhibition of its kind in Ireland.

Many of Ireland’s designers of label art are annonymous aritsts. It is collections like this one that really preserve their work: their memory lives on in their layounts, lettering, illustration and filgree. This exhibition inspires visitors to think about design in Ireland in the early 20th century and how it was even more vibrant, diverse and sophisticated than many might imagine.

Tues - Fri 10:00 - 16:00, Sat - Sun 12:00 - 16:00.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
