At Cavan County Museum our mission statement is simple; we say that on behalf of the public, through collection, conservation, and display, we will celebrate the heritage and culture of Cavan County and its environs.
The choice to include both 'heritage' and 'culture' in this statement was not merely an aesthetic one; these words were chosen because contained within them are bundles of ideas that have resounding meaning for the work we do.
A people's heritage could be said to be everything that has come before it that has helped to shape what it currently is. Its culture, though inclusive of this, has a more far-reaching meaning. A people's culture is inclusive of its past, its heritage and also its current beliefs, practices and institutions. In another sense 'culture' is a people's views about the world and of the world.
Artistic expression is an important way through which this can be shown.
The Eden Gallery is Cavan County Museum's way of engaging with this ever-changing, living expression of self and others. As our historical galleries show how we have been in the past, and how it is we have come to be as we are, The Eden Gallery shows how we express ourselves to ourselves and to others.
