This vibrant showcase, featuring unique collections and captivating installations by graduating students will be an inspiring celebration of emerging talent and innovative design.

This annual event marks the pinnacle of years of dedication, creative exploration, and artistic growth for the graduating students.

This year’s Graduate Show will be the second year of the Global Travel Award of €5,000 for three Fine Art graduates with the support of The Ireland Funds.

LSAD TUS is the only Art School in Ireland to offer such an award which will be selected by a highly respected panel of artists and curators.

For the first time, the showcase will also recognise graduates of the Bachelor of Education in Art & Design Teacher Education programme.

Commenting ahead of the 2024 Graduate Show, Mike Fitzpatrick, Dean of Limerick School of Art & Design and Director of Cultural Engagement, TUS, said: “Every year it’s such a joy to walk around the show. Please join us on Saturday June 1st, or come along any day up to June 9th, and take some time to enjoy the super creativity of our animators, film makers, fashion, graphic, ceramic and interior designers and artists – there are many wonderful works to enjoy.”
