Like most public art collections, Blacktown City Council’s collection tells the stories of our City through the work of artists. Western Sydney is home to many public art collections. Does your local Council have an art collection?
New artworks by leading Australian contemporary artists will be unveiled at “Ngara – Ngurangwa Byallara (Listen, Hear, Think – The Place Speaks)” on the Blacktown Native Institution site on Saturday, 9 June 2018.
New works by Tony Albert, Sharyn Egan and Moogahlin Performing Arts aim to bring the spirit and culture of the Blacktown Native Institution site to life, and imagine a future for this important landmark.
