It's Pride Week 2018 and we are positively beaming (a bit like that multi-coloured Pompom ^^). Art and vibrant self-expression go hand-in-hand, so we've put together a rainbow-table to celebrate some of our favourite LGBTQ+ artists and writers.
You'll note some fairly familiar faces; David Hockney, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol. But wait a minute... What is that gorgeous creature emanating light and general positivity from the middle of the table?
It's Lovely Llama; our candy-floss coloured Pride spirit guide. He's just making sure everything stays in order.
Have a fantastic Pride Week and, if you have time, check out the two LGBTQ+ tours taking place today (Friday, June 29th) in the National Gallery. Meet at the Merrion Square information desk at either 12:30 or 16:30 and "spend one hour exploring the history of gender and sexual identity through a selection of works from the collection that are connected to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community".
Book of the week #21
This week's book of the week is All the Colours I See by Allegra Agliardi. "From the soft green grass to the glistening sapphire, to the juicy yellow pear and the fallen crimson leaves, this captivating and inventive book guides children through the different shades of every colour". A great read for the week that's in it.
