We are seeking 8-13 year old's from the Sligo area to represent their county for a very very very special project.⁠

A Call Out To Children, Families & all of Sligo’s Communities⁠
In an exciting new initiative, The Model has commissioned two of Ireland’s most distinguished artists to paint the portraits of 10 young Sligo citizens. The finished paintings will become part of Sligo’s municipal Niland Collection, where they will represent these children and their communities into the future.⁠
⁠
Our vision is that these portraits will reflect the breadth and diversity of all of Sligo’s communities in 2023. We want to include and represent children from all kinds of backgrounds and abilities. We now invite Sligo people to nominate a child sitter to represent their community by having their portrait painted for our shared municipal art collection.⁠
⁠
Two of Ireland’s most accomplished portrait painters, Mick O’Dea and Geraldine O’Neill, have been commissioned to create the portraits in consultation with the children, their families and The Model’s Director, Emer McGarry.⁠

Day 1. The “Schmerzbau” has landed at The Model in Sligo… nothing broken that wasn’t broken already. A big thank you to M. Healy @room107.mh who has the task of putting this difficult jigsaw puzzle back together.⁠
