Truvo Gets Mugged Children’s Art Competition
Exhibition in Hugh Lane Learning Resource Centre, 12 September – 8 November 2009
Truvo is Ireland’s foremost multimedia search and advertising company. The Truvo Gets Mugged Children’s Art Competition was conceived to support their 2009 charity partner; Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin and discover some original and inspiring artwork to go on mugs for staff that will replace the use of disposable cups in the workplace. Truvo has teamed up with Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane to help inspire the children in the hospital.
Over the course of the summer in 2009 children from Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin took part in a series of workshops with artists from Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, as well as creating artworks in their own time. These works represent the 16 finalists selected, with four chosen from each age category, 0 – 4 years, 5 – 8 years, 9 – 12 years and 13+ years. Over 60 entries were submitted, and the rest can be seen in the folder in this exhibition.
From each age category one winner has been selected, and their artwork will be printed on mugs for the staff of Truvo Ireland and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. The money raised for the mugs will contribute towards the money being raised by Truvo Ireland for the hospital, their charity partner in 2009.
