Press release

In addition to celebrating Women's History Month during the month of March, Irish-American Heritage Month also is celebrated to honor the achievements and contributions of Irish immigrants and their descendants living in the United States.

Cities like Boston, Philadelphia, and, of course, New York, have the tradition of a large Irish, ethnic population. In 1991, President George H. W. Bush, proclaimed March as Irish-American Heritage Month.

The piece that Montana State University-Northern's Office of Diversity Awareness and Multicultural Programs is displaying this month has a link to the Irish culture by an elusive resemblance to the greenery in the landscape typical of Ireland.

"It was surprising that someone would find that connection; it is actually an open hillside during the summer time in Showdown, Montana," said Linda Pollington, creator of this piece, which is a 10 X 8" acrylic.

Pollingon said the image is partially real, partially imaginary.

Pollington is a member of the local art association. She grew up on the Hi-Line in Kremlin. She has been painting for more than 20 years, and she said she likes to do acrylics and pastels; mostly landscapes and sometimes she will also include flowers and wildlife. Pollington said she started her artistry thanks to the Havre High School Adult Education Program, and she also took classes at Northern.

Office of Diversity Awareness and Multicultural Programs invites local and regional artists to exhibit their pieces, preferably those that have some link to multicultural themes. For more information, contact [email protected] or call 265-3589.
