Project Description

Revolution in Galway 1913 – 1923

An exhibition of revolutionary stories

This exhibition was designed for Galway City Museum. It covers the turbulent period of Irish history from the lead-up to the Easter Rising until the end of the Irish Civil War. Stories of Galway’s involvement are told through key objects and images associated with the city and county.

Graphic Approach

Graphic panels line the large space breaking the story into 14 keys stages. The bold design allows the visitor to orientate themselves easily in both space and time. Specially commissioned ‘comic strips’ also break down the complex stories for the younger visitors who can then bring home a copy to colour in sketches.
