ON SIGHT 2015
On Sight is an annual artist-led initiative which sees the installation of artworks in and around the grounds of Turlough Park, home of the National Museum of Ireland -Country Life, between May and September. This exhibition is a collaboration of the National Museum of Ireland and Mayo County Council and Mayo Arts Squad and involves a number of independent artists and community groups.
The exhibition themes relate to the Mission of the Museum and are an integral part of the Museum's Féile na Tuaithe festival and ongoing programme of events.
In this, its fifth year, the theme for On Sight 2015 is: ‘Welcome to the Stranger: Migrant people, places and spaces'.
