Last Tuesday, April 25th, Bernadette one of our instructors, organised a trip for a group of participants to the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Before we left, Bernadette organised two trays of sandwiches and flasks of tea and coffee.
We left New Horizons at 10.00am and set off in the people carrier. There were six participants on the trip, Lisa, Michael, Raymond, Liam, Stephen and myself. We arrived at I.M.M.A. at about 10.45 but didn’t know, till we got there that the museum did not open until 11.30, so we decided to go for a coffee before the museum opened.
After we had finished our coffees and teas we decided to visit the Freud Project Exhibition. The Freud Project is an exhibition of a collection of works by the renowned British artist Lucian Freud.
The exhibition consisted of many portraits of various sitters, from the artists mother, his sister and her family and assorted other models. The portraits were outstanding and very striking.
Here are some examples of his work
After seeing the Freud Project Exhibition we went back to the people carrier to have our sandwiches and tea and coffee, they were lovely. After we had finished our sandwiches and tea and coffee we headed off back to New Horizons. Everyone seemed to enjoy the trip and exhibition, I know I certainly did.
