Some might think of Irish art as being comprised of fey landscapes and more traditional types of artistic expression. However, the Irish Museum of Modern Art incorporates all aspects of the Irish experience (and other experience as well) in the service of maintaining an institution that is "excellent, innovative and inclusive." The Museum was established in 1990 and is housed in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham building, which was built at the end of the 17th century. The sections of the site include "Exhibitions", "Collections", "Education and Community", and "Events Calendar". In the "Exhibitions" area, visitors can learn about their current, forthcoming, and past exhibitions through press releases and selected images. The "Collections" area lets visitors search through the permanent collection held by the Museum, and they can also learn more about the provocative Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art Collection. The site also includes information about visiting the museum in Dublin and visitors can also send along a virtual postcard here as well.
