The stained-glass windows were installed permanently in the OLV building following the successful exhibition in The Atrium in October 2014
Light Source celebrated RADE’s 10th anniversary with a show that developed service-users’ visual-arts skills by learning the medieval craft of stained glass. Facilitated by stained-glass artist Peter Young, participants designed and built two large stained-glass windows which are now permanently installed in RADE’s premises, the OLV Building.
Before the installation, the windows were exhibited in their entirety in The Atrium, Wood Quay, Dublin 8, from 25th August to 5th September 2014. The exhibition also included artwork from participants. Dean Victor Stacey of St. Patrick’s Cathedral officially opened the exhibition.
Following the successful exhibition in The Atrium, the windows returned to the OLV Building and were installed in the main space downstairs. To mark the occasion, Lord Mayor Christy Burke officially unveiled the windows and praised the group’s work. These windows, which add a touch of colour and brightness to RADE’s home, are now the first thing participants, staff and visitors see on entering the premises.
