Students at Limerick School of Art & Design (LSAD) are adding the finishing touches to their designs and projects which will be unveiled to the public at the 2022 LSAD Graduate Show on Saturday, June 4th and will be available to view at the Clare Street Campus until June 12th.
Celebrating 170 years since its establishment, the opening of the LSAD Graduate Show on June 4th also marks the return of the first in-person Graduate Show in two years due to the pandemic. This year’s 220 graduates from across Ireland and internationally will showcase their work.
Recognised as one of Europe’s leading fine art, design and creative media schools, LSAD graduates have gone on to achieve huge success here in Ireland and internationally in their respective industries. One of those students is John M. Cunningham who will open the graduate show on June 4th. John is Head of Creative Urban Places at the City of Melbourne and is leading the strategic development and management of a 10 year, multi-million dollar temporary and permanent public art project for the city.
Commenting ahead of the 2022 Graduate Show, Mike Fitzpatrick, Dean of Limerick School of Art &
Design and Director of Cultural Engagement TUS said, “We are delighted to welcome the public back to
LSAD for our first in-person Graduate Show since 2019 and there is a lot to look forward to from our 220 students. There are many strengths within this year’s show and we are very excited about the Graphic Design students who have moved into using User Experience (UX) design and interactive engagement. This allows people to use online facilities to look at all aspects of their life from safety and beauty products to education and much more. Our Creative Broadcast & Film Production students have produced exceptional work this year, featuring projects from the history of Coonagh Airfield to a must-see documentary on the Techno Music scene.”
He added, “It’s a very exciting time for LSAD having recently established our partnership with the Regional University Network – European University (RUN-EU), where we can collaborate with partners across Europe, allowing our students to gain an enhanced education and understanding of art, design, and creativity in a truly European context.”
The LSAD Graduate Show will open to the public at 3pm on June 4th and will be available to view from 10am to 5pm daily until June 12th.
