Why is the Sky is Blue?

  • Workshop

VISUAL Carlow presents: Blue Skies: Why is the Sky Blue? This year for Criunniú na nÓg you can’t all come to VISUAL, your arts centre here in Carlow. So we would like to invite young people all over Carlow to make an exhibition of your own at home.
John Tyndall was a famous scientist from Leighlinbridge, Co. Carlow who tried to understand why the sky is blue.  Do you know why the sky is blue? Could you make an exhibition about this question, Why is the Sky Blue?

Here are some guidelines…
You should hold your exhibition on the 13th of June, Cruinniú na nÓg. Your exhibition could be enormous or tiny, it could take place anywhere in your home or garden! Then share your exhibitions with us. Send us a video of you giving a tour of your exhibition, send us pictures or artworks you have made. There will be a prize for the most creative exhibition – €100 to spend on art supplies. More prizes to be announced.
We’ve invited some artist experts to help you get started, give you some ideas and to warn you about exhibition disasters! They’ll be sharing tips on our website and social media in the lead up to Cruinniú na nÓg.
More help! You can ask VISUAL’s curators for help with your project. Book a zoom or phone chat by emailing or DM us on Instagram or Facebook @visual_carlow. You can also ring reception at VISUAL for further information 059 9172400.

VISUAL is open for phone calls from Tuesday- Friday 11- 5pm.
