Calling all children and adults – Let us know what you have been up to! Please send us your photos, drawings or videos showing us what you have baked/made/designed/planted and what has entertained you during these past weeks (this could include somebody making you dig the garden…).

Please send images with a 50 word description, your name and the area you live in to our email address museum@galwaycity.ie with the subject heading #mycovidcreativity

You can also share your activity with the hashtag #mycovidcreativity on Facebook or Instagram.

Many thanks to Marina Claudia Alessandra Postir from Dromineer on the shore of Lough Derg. Marine titled her work ‘ÁR an ARAN’. “My work speaks to the existential struggle between life and death harkening back to the fishermens struggle and my own battle with cancer. This work was created as a response to and a respite from cancer treatment; it was created over six months and is an exercise in meticulous patience and craft. All of my work is the slow application of effort to build a larger harmonious whole."

Thank you to Anthony Walsh from Knocknacarra who sent us a very creative video. "During the 2020 pandemic, I  entertained myself by accepting the Getty Museum Challenge. At home, I recreated the famous Vincent Van Gogh self portrait with a bandaged ear. I chose this masterpiece because the artist had just returned from hospital and I stayed home to ensure I did not go to hospital"

#MyCovidCreativity continued….

Galway City Museum would love to continue to document the initiative & creativity shown by people in Galway during this ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. What have you been up to? Evenings can be especially long in this Covid era, how are you passing the time?  Maybe you’re taking photos or keeping a journal of this ‘new norm’.  Or have you been inspired to write poems, songs or stories? Maybe you’ve composed a new piece of music.  Are you Ireland’s answer to Mary Berry by now or could you give Dermot Bannon a run for his money with your brilliant designs? 

Thanks to all of you who have shared your fantastic creations with us so far, you can see them displayed on our website, galwaycitymuseum.ie – it is shaping up to be some exhibition when the time comes! Let’s keep it growing!! Send your photos, drawings or videos to museum@galwaycity.ie

Many thanks to Sally McHugh from Corotin, Co.Galway for sending us a postcard! "I have been busy making art thanks to these free postcards from An Post! I've been experimenting with different art forms and then sending them to friends and family.
ART has been a wonderful de-stresser!
This card is a mixture of printing and collage, made from materials around the house - poster paints, rose foliage and newsprint"

Thank you to Michelle Greaves for the link to her new blog with some fabulous photographs taken over the last few months. "During the 2 km restriction I created a photography project called "Looking Out". During this global pandemic life continues behind windows. In this project "Looking Out" we are trying to capture what life is like looking out into a seemingly abandoned outside world." Link to the blog which has more details: http://www.wonkyeye.ie/wonky-eye-blogger.

Thank you to Anthony Walsh from Knocknacarra for sharing his wonderful painting. Here's what he had to say: "This is my painting of my life whilst isolating at home during the Covid-19 virus.
As I could not go to school or have any playdates I had my pets for company.
Throughout the 2020 lockdown I wore a protective face mask.
As nobody said “howya” anymore, I painted “howya” on my mask!"

Well done to Oisin and Naoise Flynn, ages 10 and 7 from Doughiska, Galway for making this amazing robot during the lockdown. Thanks for sharing guys! Here's what they had to say: "Introducing ‘GRETA LOCKDOWN’, our environmentally friendly robot. She is entirely made up of household waste packaging which was due for landfill until we saw the opportunity to up-cycle our waste into something fun and beautiful. After all who doesn’t want to live with a friendly personal robot. We have also been very busy building Code, Lego and Stop Motion Animations throughout the Lockdown." Galway City Museum look forward to seeing more of the brilliant inititiative & creativity shown by people in Galway during the #COVIDー19 pandemic. Send photos, drawings or videos showing what you have baked/ made/ planted/ designed to museum@galwaycity.ie
