The Sunset belongs to you
In a celebration of the breadth and diversity of all of Sligo’s communities today, The Model has commissioned two of Ireland’s leading artists, Geraldine O’Neill and Mick O’Dea, to paint individual oil portraits of 18 Sligo children. In a reversal of the power structures of traditional portraiture, this artistic gesture has inclusivity at its core; and is underpinned by the idea that ‘you cannot be what you cannot see’. The finished portraits will become part of The Niland Collection, where they will have a meaningful presence alongside portraits of politicians, activists, artists and other change-makers for generations to come.
Where: The Model, Sligo
