Culture Night 2023
at Butler Gallery

  • Arrow Friday 22 September

Join us at Butler Gallery to celebrate Culture Night 2023! This celebratory evening will include activities and entertainment for all the family. With late entry to Butler Gallery you can visit our current exhibition The Art of Sport and enjoy a curatorial tour with Director, Anna O’Sullivan, as she leads the audience through this thematic exhibition exploring how artists have captured the spirit of sport through the varied mediums of video, photography, painting, print and sculpture. Visitors are also invited to view a short programme of archive sport films curated by the Irish Film Institute in our Digital Gallery, and wander around our permanent collection, immersing in the fine selection of art that Butler Gallery has to offer.

A fun filled drop-in art workshop for children will take place in our learning centre, creating art that will reflect on the current exhibition The Art of Sport.

Finally to end the evening of culture, proceed to the Butler Gallery garden, where live music will be performed by folk, roots and powerhouse blues singer Clara Rose and Friends.
