The Ballinglen Museum of Art is a public space for exhibition, creative exchange, engagement, research, and meetings. Ballinglen Fellows donate a work of art, some generously give more than one, made in response to their fellowship to the Ballinglen Permanent Collection. This collection now contains over 850 artworks and is a record of 30 years of visits by Irish and international artists to Ballinglen. Reflective of the environment, heritage, community, and soul of this part of North Mayo, it is a unique and significant collection of art.
Our goal is to promote understanding and recognition of the arts with exhibitions and public events; to be of public service to the wider public and a community of artists; to foster partnerships with cultural organisations in Mayo, Ireland, and internationally. Ballinglen has a long history of providing enriching arts experiences for the public, children, and adults through creative education programmes led by working artists.
