During the month of August, teaching artist Pamella Allen will devise an exhibition with a group of young students from Irish Arts Center’s local Hell’s Kitchen community. Exploring the famous Irish illuminated manuscript, The Book of Kells, students will take part in an artist residency to create their own handmade books based on their life, family, culture, and relationship to their neighborhood. Through papermaking, bookbinding, illustration, and creative writing techniques, this immersive and interactive project will awaken the creativity of our youngest neighbors and bring to life their own cultures and traditions.
