For the first time, members of the public can enjoy art exhibitions from the comfort of their own home with a launch of virtual visits at a Cork gallery.
Despite current restrictions, people can continue to enjoy Crawford Art Gallery and all it has to offer with the new and innovative approach to tours.
The Crawford Art Gallery has officially unveiled the brand-new virtual tour, which offers a safe way to enjoy exhibits while the gallery remains closed.
The tours will allow virtual visitors to roam gallery spaces like the Sculpture Galleries which house the famous Canova casts which form the basis of the Crawford collection.
