national-print-musuem-logoOn Sunday 24 January 2016 the National Print Museum organised an open day and call for artefacts to feature in a forthcoming special exhibition that will seek to engage the public in an understanding of the Easter Rising from a fresh perspective. This exhibition will explore the role of printers active in 1916 and the central role of printed media in shaping the image and meaning of the Rising. The exhibition committee is now calling for original material relating to these two principal print-related themes. Potential material might include: printers’ records, photographs, newspapers, posters, memorial cards, other contemporary printed ephemera or indeed 1966 printed commemorative material. An open day took place on Sunday 24 January from 2pm until 4pm. Interested parties were invited to call into the museum with any material which they would be willing to loan to the National Print Museum for the duration of the exhibition. The museum committee met with visitors on the day and photographed potential exhibition material. The National Print Museum is located in the Garrison Chapel of Beggars Bush Barracks, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. For more information, please contact  carlamarrinan@nationalprintmuseum.ie/01-6603770.
