Why is the Sky Blue?

This year for Cruinniú na nÓg, we want you to make an exhibition, artwork or performance at home or for your neighbourhood about why the sky is blue.

Did you know that John Tyndall, a scientist from Carlow, helped to discover why the sky is blue?

You should hold your exhibition at home with the theme is Why is the Sky Blue? Your exhibition could be huge or very small, it could happen under your bed, in the garden, in the bath or take over an entire room of your house.

There will be a prize for the most creative exhibition - €150 to spend on art supplies. These supplies will be delivered to your door and may come in handy for summer activities! To enter the competition please send videos or photos of your exhibition to learning@visualcarlow.ie , the closing date to enter is extended to the 27th of June.

Exhibitions happen in lots of different ways so we’ve invited some artist experts to help you get started, give you some ideas and to warn you about exhibition disasters!
