Our Virtual Speaker’s Series returns on 3 September at 9:00 AM PST with Seattle-based, Irish-born artist and glassblower Paula Stokes. Paula's catalogue includes the stunning installation 1845: Memento Mori, which memorializes An Gorta Mór with 1,845 hand-blown glass potatoes.
Called “a profound meditation on the triumph of humanity’s survival,” this is an act of deep veneration. Paula will be in conversation with Portland-based Irish journalist Fiona McCann. Bígí linn!
