Limerick City Gallery of Art celebrates its Sixty Year Anniversary since the inital 'Limerick City Gallery' was opened as a purpose built extension to 'Carnegie Free Library and Museum' in 1948. The gallery extended into the full building in 1985 with major internal renovations and extended further in 1999 with the white cube South Gallery, becoming Limerick City Gallery of Art.

This year Limerick City Gallery of Art's sixtieth anniversary was celebrated through a series of major exhibitions including Walter Verling Sixty Year Retrospective; two major commisioned site-specific solo exhibitions by Simon Starling and Michael McLoughlin; Presence, Exhibition of Leading Irish Artists Associated with Limerick celebrating the wealth and diversity of Limerick artistic excellence; and Seeing Georgian Limerick, documenting this historic area of Limerick City.

This major anniversary is also celebrated by the launch of this new, fully accessible website, including searchable images and details of the highlights of Limerick City Gallery Art's vast Collection.
