SHU presents new art exhibit commemorating Ireland’s 1916 Rising

A Terrible Beauty: Ireland’s 1916 Rising 100th Anniversary Commemoration is Sacred Heart University’s newest art exhibit, featuring the work of Robert “Rab” Kerr, open to the public from April 10-18. On Tuesday, April 12, from 4-7 p.m., there will be an opening reception with presentations from University professors, music and refreshments.

Kerr is an Irish republican ex-prisoner who spent 18 years in British prisons, including three years on the “Blanket Protest” in the H-blocks and participation in the “Great Escape” from Long Kesh in 1983. Since his release from prison, he has co-authored four books of photographs documenting the history of Belfast during the last century. He also produced a number of booklets and magazines. In 2008, he wrote Republican Belfast: A Political Tourist’s Guide.

The event will be held in the Art & Design Gallery at the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts, Sacred Heart University, 5151 Park Avenue, Fairfield,

Sponsored by Sacred Heart University’s Art & Design Gallery.

The event is free and open to the public.
