!GRAND OPENING! with Liliane Puthod

08 — 10 July 2021, 11am - 3pm

Let’s pretend a !GRAND OPENING! Is happening in 2221! 200 years from now… what will be opening then? Enjoy designing your own Grand Opening poster as a way to create an imaginary futuristic cityscape in Temple Bar.

What kind of extraordinary things or places would you like to see a grand opening poster for as you walk around Temple Bar? Something surreal… never seen before? Maybe in 2221 Temple Bar will be submerged with buildings afloat, maybe we will build higher or lower, under or above with new materials and new purposes! What would you like to see or do in Temple Bar in the future?

A programme of activities designed by artist Liliane Puthod can be enjoyed outdoors and online, in Temple Bar or at home. Suitable for all ages (children must be accompanied by an adult). This programme takes place in line with current government Covid-19 guidelines and weather permitting.

How to Participate Outdoors

Join us at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios where there will be free art-making materials at our workstations, or take an art pack away. Explore Temple Bar and make your own art. Art packs will be available to collect and take home should the weather not allow outdoor art-making.
