Na semana passada foi inaugurada na área do Temple Bar uma iniciativa muito bacana chamada The Icon Factory.
DUBLIN — Since the days of the bards, when poets served as aides-de-camp to medieval chieftains here, Ireland has built a reputation as a birthing ground for legend and verse.
Vagando con rumbo incierto por las calles de Dublín, al más puro estilo Leopold Bloom, uno llega sin querer hasta el mural erigido en el nombre de su creador, James Joyce, en los callejones ruinosos y sombríos de Temple Bar.
Brendan Behan's poster on a Dublin alley wall has a message you might want to send to the Minnesota legislature, or the U.S. Congress: "I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the road safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer." Roads, anyone ? Food stamps ? Heating assistance ?
RTE - The Icon Art Walk, featuring images of Bono, Seamus Heaney and Oscar Wilde, opened yesterday in Dublin's Temple Bar
The Walk, which takes in Bedford Lane, Aston Place and Price's Lane, chronicles Irish culture from the birth of the Nation to the fall of the Tiger.
This fantastic artists collective in the heart of Temple Bar hosts exhibitions on Ireland’s cultural heritage.
Down the laneways and back alleys of Temple Bar large panels and murals tell the stories of the greats of Irish fashion, music, literature, art, sport, comedy and more. This is the Icon Walk.
The Icon Factory is a not-for-profit artists’ collective, aimed at promoting our country’s cultural icons.
A small lane way that I randomly spotted on a walk through the city of Dublin ended up being one of my favourite parts of Dublin.
The Icon Factory is a non-profit charity that is staffed by contemporary artists and passionate volunteers.
Pitching itself as “the greatest story ever strolled”, the Icon Walk cracks the heart of the Irish people wide open and tie-dyes the backstreets of Temple Bar with its vibrant colours.
Lady Gregory, Countess Markievicz, Eva Gore-Booth, Kate O’Brien, Edna O’Brien, Teresa Deevy and Maria Edgeworth are honoured in Dublin.
