I may not be updating as much during the centennial week as I would otherwise, as I am currently in Ireland to participate in some of the centennial events in County Cork. A few more centennial events for people who are interested:

Glasgow, Scotland: Glen Art presents: An evening of words and music commemorating the centenary anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania on Friday, 8 May, at the Tall Ship at Riverside

Victoria, B.C., Canada: Walking tours of anti-German riots in Victoria, B.C., following the Lusitania sinking, on Saturday, 9 May and Sunday, 10 May

However, a few ongoing exhibits on the European side of the Atlantic may interest readers if you cannot travel to Ireland or England for the centennial commemoration by Thursday:

Liverpool – Lusitania: Life, Loss, Legacy

Throughout 2015 at the Merseyside Maritime Museum. Free Entry. This new exhibition marks the centennial of the Lusitania sinking, highlighting the people involved in the Lusitania story. The display also considers the role of Liverpool’s ships in the First World War.

Dublin – Hugh Lane (1875 – 1915): Dublin’s Legacy and Loss

Through 4 October at the Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. Free Entry. The exhibit celebrates Sir Hugh Percy Lane, the philanthropist and art dealer who presented a priceless collection of artworks to Dublin to establish a Gallery of Modern Art in 1908.
