If you've been thinking that art in Ireland is all penny whistles and fiddlers and maybe some lace, it's time to pay a visit to the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). IMMA displays its collection "in rotating temporary exhibitions, exploring the work of individual artists in solo displays, and through curated group exhibitions." Currently, Time out of Mind: Works from the IMMA Collection is on view at the National Concert Hall in Dublin. At the IMMA website, wander the Museum's wings by taking one of the four virtual tours provided: Mindful Media, work from the 1970s by New York-based Irish artist Les Levine; the Madden Arnholz Collection - old master prints collected by Fritz (Colm) Arnholz and Etain Madden Arnholz, an early donation to the IMMA; paintings made in the last 10 years by Philip Taaffe; and Twenty: Celebrating 20 Years of the Irish Museum of Modern Art. The Permanent Collection Database is under construction, and a search feature should be released this year.
