the sum OF US Project
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 Museum
- Woolpack Inn Museum
- Headlie Taylor Header Museum,
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 found HERE.
