When Art Met Pop
Commissioned by Illustrators Ireland, an exhibition in the Grand Social will pay tribute to The Beatles – and their extraordinary legacy of great songs.

Phantom FM’s Pearl picked ‘Here Comes The Sun’ and ‘Day Tripper’. “I think it’s a brilliant idea, as the songs lend themselves so well to illustration. It’s great to give them a new interpretation,” she enthuses. “The Beatles have been around such a long time, you can take them for granted – but hopefully a new generation will be inspired by this show. ‘Here Comes The Sun’ is a song that tends to cheer me up a lot and there aren’t many of those songs on my list. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they come up with for it. It’ll be fantastic.”
The Illustrated Beatles will run until October 30 at the Grand Social, 35 Lower Liffey St. Dublin.
