LISDOONVARNA’s Tina O’Connell has been named as the winner of the 2024 Global Travel Award.

Tina who is a Limerick School of Art and Design Graduate in Sculpture & Combined Media, was named as the recipient of the award on Saturday. The bursary for Fine Arts graduates, now in its second year, was announced by Aoife Ruane, Curator and Director of Highlanes Gallery.

O’Connell’s winning piece ‘Odysseys of Self’ was selected by a respected panel of artists and curators Laura Fitzgerald (Artist), Paul McAree (Curator, Lismore Castle Arts) and Patrick Murphy (Director Royal Hibernian Academy) and Aoife Ruane.

The Global Travel Award of €5,000, is open to all students graduating from its BA in Fine Art and B.Ed Art and Design Teacher Education in 2024. The Award has been designed to offer the chosen graduate a unique opportunity to develop their future career.

This philanthropic funding has been made available for students with support from The Ireland Funds. LSAD is honoured to be the only Art School in Ireland to offer such a prestigious travel award.

In order to enter for the Award, BA in Fine Art and BEd Art and Design Teacher Education students prepared a submission package with images of their work and most importantly provide a statement outlining what they could achieve with the travel bursary and how this will assist with their future creative development.

300 students from Ireland and beyond will attend the Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD TUS) Graduate Show over the coming week. Hosted at TUS Clare St. Campus in Limerick City, the Show opened to the public at 1pm on June 1, and will be available to view from 10am to 5pm daily until Sunday, June 9.
