Photo Post: St. Patrick's Day

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Saint Patrick’s Day was named after Saint Patrick, one of the most recognized patron saints of Ireland. Originally, the color associated with Saint Patrick was blue. Over time, the color green and its association with Saint Patrick’s Day grew. Green shamrocks and hats were worn in Saint Patrick’s Day festivities as early as the seventeenth century and continue to be used today. To celebrate Saint Patty’s Day, I included works from across the DMA’s  Collection with the color green.  Enjoy!
