An Artistic Presence--City Centre, Cork

I visited Cork's Crawford Art Gallery located in northern city center next to the opera house and just a few blocks from my flat.  It is a free gallery, so the collection is small, but the sampling of Irish work is just enough to keep yourself busy for an hour or two--my favorites were a F E McWilliam Bronze titled 'Woman in a Bomb Blast' and an exhibit of Henry Clarke watercolors. Although the formal presence of art in Cork is somewhat lacking, the city blossoms with street art (in addition to the graffiti).
