The lecture is free and open to the public, but registration is required, the release said. Go to ighm.org to register. O’Sullivan also will talk about the museum's plan for future exhibitions when she kicks off the museum’s celebration of its fifth anniversary, the release said.

The Hunger Museum - Helen Bennett
"Formerly head of education at the National Gallery of Ireland, she curated “The Eyes of a Child” (National Gallery of Ireland, 1979) and the first retrospective exhibitions of Aloysius O’Kelly (Hugh Lane, 2000), and Daniel Macdonald (IGHM, 2016). Among her various accomplishments, O’Sullivan is also an award-winning scholar. Her publications include “Aloysius O’Kelly: Art, Nation, Empire” (2010), “The Tombs of a Departed Race: Illustrations of Ireland’s Great Hunger” (2014) and “In the Lion’s Den: Daniel Macdonald, Ireland and Empire” (2016). "
 
Also in the release: "Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University is home to the world's largest collection of visual art, artifacts and printed materials relating to the Irish Famine. The museum preserves, builds and presents its art collection to stimulate reflection, inspire imagination and advance awareness of Ireland's Great Hunger and its long aftermath on both sides of the Atlantic."
