The Sum of Us project is a chance to look beyond mere aesthetics and explore the rich stories behind objects that could so easily be overlooked. Nine local collections: Albury LibraryMuseum The Flying Fruit Fly Circus Hothouse Theatre Jindera Pioneer Musuem Culcairn Station House Musuem Wymah Musuem Holbrook Submarine Musuem Woolpack Inn Museum Headlie Taylor Header Musuem, have each chosen an item that best depicts the theme, quirky domestic.
Each of these unpolished gems has a story connecting us to something more. Having debuted with a collective exhibition at the Albury LibraryMuseum, the exhibition forms a trail across the Albury-Greater Hume Region with each unique object, story and photograph on display. Opening times for some of the respective collections can be foundHERE.
