Pictiúr

We had a lovely curious outing earlier this week at the opening of the new Pictiúr exhibition in the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Rachel and I are both huge fans of picture books so we very excited to see some the work of some of our favorite illustrators.

Pictiúr is an touring exhibition featuring 21 of Ireland’s fantastic children’s book illustrators. It has already visited Vienna, Bologna, Brussels, Belgium and Draíocht Arts Centre in Blanchardstown and the Babaró Children’s Festival in Galway and will be on show in IMMA until January 12th.

It’s right beside the cafe so you can indulge your sweet tooth too!
