Description

For the 150th anniversary of Ireland’s Great Hunger of the 1840s, Glenna Goodacre created this 30-foot-long bronze set in a park over I-95. With more than two dozen life-sized figures, the sculpture tells the story of the multitudes who died in the old country as well as the hundreds of thousands who crowded onto disease-ridden ships for the Great Migration to America.
