Cast your eyes on an exciting array of items, some not previously displayed, from the Visual Arts and Performing Arts Collections, in Treasures of the Adelaide Festival Centre collections in the Artspace Gallery (upstairs in the Dunstan Playhouse) at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
This is an Aladdin’s cave of “treasures” including the significant, quirky, unusual and sometimes the everyday things we have forgotten, showing the diversity and range of 31 years of collecting from the Performing Arts Collection. The Visual Arts collection has been formed over 36 years and includes significant permanent works, sculptures, prints and paintings by well known artists.
There will be information panels as part of the exhibition to inform visitors of the respective focuses of both departments.
“Roll up, roll up, be astounded, be amazed and taken back in time with this unique collection created from the donations of performing artists and the public alike,” said Jo Peoples (Exhibition Coordinator, Performing Arts Collection).
The exhibition is running from 27 March – 25 April 2010.
Go and check it out between 12noon – 5pm Wednesday to Saturday and between 10am – 4pm on Sundays.
