Yeats & the West
The Model, Sligo Until May 12
Curators Tours Thursdays 1pm
Public Talks Thursdays 6pm
The idea of the west of Ireland, as much as the reality, was vital for WB Yeats and Jack B Yeats. This co-operative project, involving the Model and NUI Galway, considers WB’s involvement with the Irish west through a wealth of documentary and artistic material. These include a display of the Model’s recently acquired Cuala Press Broadsides, designed by Jack B with hand-coloured illustrations. There is a detailed accompanying programme of lectures.
NB every Thursday Curators Tour at 1pm and at 6pm Talks. This Thursday the following:
