The campaign to support Mosman Art Gallery - carved tree project.
In May 2015, Mosman Art Gallery received the National Award from Museums and Galleries of Australia for its Bungaree’s Farm exhibition - this is the highest award that can be given to a gallery in Australia.
From the Bungaree’s Farm exhibition, a series of 24 Aboriginal poles (Country by Warwick Keen - find out more here) were acquired and installed as permanent pieces in the gallery’s forecourt, which has been developed into a stunning sculpture garden.
Listen to artist Warwick Keen and curator Djon Mundine speak about Country in this 30 second video.
