Struggling to squeeze some culture into your schedule?
Cork’s Crawford Art Gallery has come up with the perfect way to fall in love with some of their most timeless artworks this Culture Night, September 22nd: an event called Speed Dating the Collection.
Visitors will be treated to ten-minute “speed dating” mini-talks with an expert guide, in front of a selection of artworks by artists including John Butts, Sean Keating, Rita Duffy, and Mainie Jellet.
“A handsome stranger like Sean Keating’s Men of the South or Rita Duffy’s Epiphany may catch your eye: the artworks of Crawford’s collection are not exactly lonely hearts but they’re definitely looking for love, and this is a chance to fall for them, truly, madly, deeply,” they told us.
Speed Dating the Collection is just one event on Crawford’s programme for Culture Night, which sees the gallery team up with Cork events impresarios The Good Room to stay open until 11pm with a spectacular programme of events featuring everything from family-friendly Interactive Workshops to live music to poetry and conversation.
“The evening will be a true feast for the senses, with in-house café the Green Room open and serving small plates and a kids’ menu for hungry culture vultures until 9.30pm.” they added.
Pay a visit to Crawford Art Gallery this Culture Night, September 22nd, 2023, from 5pm to 11pm, no booking is required.
