The Glucksman Gallery in Cork City is located at University College Cork’s main entrance on Western Road, this 2000m² landmark building includes three floors of display spaces, lecture facilities and a gallery shop. The Glucksman Gallery places education at the heart of its activities with a wide range of art workshops, film screenings, seminars, lecture series and gallery tours on offer throughout the year that explore the artistic programme in greater depth.
A special programme, supporting the national curriculum, is available for schools. Another key objective is to introduce children to a university setting at an early age, encouraging them to view third level education as an accessible and desirable prospect.
The Glucksman Gallery has received numerous awards including Best Public Building in Ireland from the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, a RIBA award, a UK Civic Trust award, and was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize.
