3 Well Known Australians

THIS EXHIBITION IS NOW CLOSED

When Sydney artist Martin Shaw painted Three Well Known Australians in 1982, he sparked a guessing game that has entertained and intrigued generations of Australians. This enigmatic artwork has travelled to galleries, libraries, and public halls non-stop since that time, inviting viewers across the nation to guess the identity of the figures it depicts. Some key personalities that have been suggested have been Gough Whitlam, Cathy Freeman, and Ita Buttrose. The exhibit will open in the Mundaring District Museum on Wednesday 9 March 2022 and will be displayed until 19 April 2022. It will include recent letters from Prime Minister Scott Morrison and WA Premier Mark McGowan. 

This exhibit is ideal for school students. Students are invited to used their creative imagination to name the figures and there will be a small activity for Primary School students and a sticker for them to take home. 

NEW EXHIBITION COMING SOON!
