Young People Create Siege Art

Fri, 01/08/2014 - 10:47am

More than 50 fantastic entries were received for the Siege Museum's recent Schools Art Competition. Pupils from Oakgrove, Lisneal, Saint Cecilia's and Saint Joseph's created a piece of art inspired by the Siege, after a workshop with the Siege Museum's  outreach officer.

 The winning entries will appear on the hoarding around the Siege Museum site in Society Street, as work commences on a new museum and visitor centre. Billy Moore, Chair of The Siege Museum Company and General Secretary of the Apprentice Boys Association, "We are delighted that so many young people engaged with the story of the Siege and at the high standards of entries. The art work will form a colourful foreground to the building work that has now started, and is an indication of our intention for the visitor centre to be a shared space for all the community."
