Children’s Anti-Sectarianism Artwork, Belfast, Northern Ireland

Sectarianism Take Down Barriers
Sectarianism Take Down Barriers

In 2009, I visited Belfast, Northern Ireland.  While walking down a city road I was struck by children’s artwork displayed in a window.  The theme of the artwork was sectarianism.  The artwork communicated to me these children’s experience of living in a segregated and battle scarred society. It deeply saddened me that these young children obviously knew too well what sectarianism was – in my mind – an adult theme. Presented here are the photographs I took of their artwork hanging in the window.

The group exhibit “Art Howard County 2013” showcases quite an assortment of subjects and styles at the Howard County Arts Council. Juror Fahimeh Vahdat, chairwoman of visual arts at Howard Community College, has picked work demonstrating the artistic diversity found within the county’s art community…

“There are two photographers, both working in black-and-white, who also both focus on Buddhist temple architecture in Asia. Ann Von Lossberg’s photos taken in Myanmar feature two temple interiors and one temple exterior, while Jacqueline Quinn LaRocca’s three photos taken in Thailand all go for wider views showing how temple complexes fit within the landscape.”
