Currently on Exhibit: From Protest to Peace

Stop by the Ferguson Gallery at LNDL through Friday, December 4 to view “From Protest to Peace,” an exhibit of murals by the Derry Bogside Artists of Northern Ireland. From the exhibition statement:

"In 1994, brothers Tom and William Kelly and their friend Kevin Hasson joined together as The Bogside Artists. The artists personally experienced the unfolding of the Northern Irish 'Troubles' during their lifetimes and ultimately united to express the struggle for civil rights in their community through public art. While the group continues the Ulster tradition of using the mural for social commentary, The Bogside Artists stand alone in their efforts to utilize this medium in cross-community workshops involving Protestants and Catholics to advance the peace and reconciliation process in Northern Ireland."
