Description

National Museums NI is partnering with Ulster University (UU) and Belfast City Council to launch a unique artistic experience that is hoped to be an annual highlight of the city’s festive events calendar.

In its opening year, “Art Unwrapped” will showcase an artistic masterpiece as a Christmas gift to the City of Belfast.
Visitors will enjoy not only the opportunity to view the stunning painting but also to have a guided introduction to the work and journey through the interpretive story.
The masterpiece from National Museums NI’s national collection is Emigrant Ship Leaving Belfast (1852) by James Glen Wilson and it will be on display at Ulster University’s gallery in York Street, Belfast.
Tours last 30 minutes and are free. Places are limited and booking in advance is advised to avoid disappointment.
