Travel Assistance to See Carrolup Children's Artwork Exhibition

Tuesday, 25 June 2013

Venue: John Curtin Gallery, Perth

John Curtin Gallery are providing travel assistance for relatives of the child artists of Carrolup Native River Settlement to attend the opening of the Carrolup exhibition on 1 August.

More than 100 artworks created by Noongar children at the Carrolup River Native Settlement in the 1950s was bequeathed to the Colgate University by New York art collector Herbert Mayer in 1966. Since then, the artworks were stored in the University's archives until a chance discovery by a visiting Australian scholar in 2004. Last month it was announced that the works will be repatriated to WA, to be held by Curtin University, which has the highest number of enrolled Noongar students in WA. John Curtin Gallery (of Curtin University) are offering to assist relatives of the Carrolup child artists to attend the exhibition opening by way of a bus trip and possible overnight accomodation.
