Footage of JFK in Ireland Featured in Kimmel Windows Exhibit Marking 20th Anniversary of Glucksman Ireland House NYU

November 22, 2013

New York University’s Kimmel Center Windows marks the 20th anniversary of Glucksman Ireland House NYU with a dynamic exhibition of 13 large-scale, color panels. Each window thematically depicts aspects of the range of activities in Irish Studies that have been formalized at NYU since the 1993 opening of Glucksman Ireland House at 1 Washington Mews.

Themes encapsulated in the exhibit include: the opportunities to undertake cutting edge research at Glucksman Ireland House NYU through a Minor or a Masters in Irish & Irish-American Studies; NYU's Summer in Dublin Program; disciplinary excellence in Historical Studies, Literature, Irish Language and Music and Culture; a vibrant public events calendar; and the ethnic legacies preserved at the Archives of Irish America through collaboration with Glucksman Ireland House NYU. Faculty member Jean Butler, original lead and choreographer of Riverdance, features on the Music and Culture Window a piece fittingly entitled "Tap." On the "Preserve" Window, footage of JFK’s visit to Ireland in June 1963 runs on a continuous loop and has been provided by kind permission of the Irish Film Archive and The Columban Fathers.

The 60” X 80” panels, reproduced on self-adhesive vinyl have been mounted on the inside of each exterior window of the Kimmel Center Windows Gallery, located at LaGuardia Place and West 3rd Street. Curated by Miriam Nyhan, Ph.D., and her colleagues at Glucksman Ireland House NYU, the display will remain on view through January 24, 2014.
