10 Questions About…

Saturday Morning at Hugh Lane by Ann Treacy

On Saturday morning the girls and I went to the Hugh Lane Gallery where they were having a crafts day for kids to make ornaments for Chinese New Years.

One random very fun thing – we walked the length of O’Connell Street – which is a big street just north of the Liffey. They have a new art installment of computerized walkers leading to the Hugh Lane Gallery.

I had seen one or two of these walkers but I hadn’t seen them all – since I rarely head that far north and we rarely go to the Hugh Lane. I have included videos of a couple of the walkers below. I had to be the walker friend since the girls (even Aine!) were too cool to do it. (Aine is not too cool to lick the bus every time we’re on it – but too cool to do me one little favor of walking with the electronic walker.) By the way – I’m wearing two jackets – that’s why I look so pudgy. 🙂

Anyways the girls enjoyed the craft project of cutting out rats to prepare to celebrate the Year of the Rat. We’ll definitely be heading back there. While they were working, I saw some Monet and Degas, so that’s fun too.

Patrick met up with us at the gallery and we headed to the Science Gallery, which I’ll put into the next post. I took some pictures of O’Connell Street and the Spire while we were out. The Spire is a big public art piece.

I love those walkers. Why would you want the kids to do it, when you can have the chance?!! Beth

Good point!

Maybe they would make a good installation for some gym!
