The Model is one of Ireland’s leading centres for contemporary art. We host compelling contemporary art exhibitions by international and Irish artists in our newly redeveloped suite of galleries. We are also home to Sligos municipal art collection, The Niland Collection, shown on a rotation basis. In addition to our music, education and cinema programmes, we also have eight studios for visual arts practice and a full-time, international Artist-in-Residence Programme.
