Visitors to Subiaco Museum will enjoy the permanent and changing exhibitions mounted in the museum’s galleries, featuring the City’s art and heritage collections.
Subiaco Communtiy pulls together to assist the war effort
From Tuesday 20 April Subiaco Museum will be showcasing some of the ways in which the Subiaco community pulled together in both WWI and WWII to support the war efforts. On display will be objects and photographs that reflect the wide ranging ways in which individuals and groups combined their resources, time and commitment to contribute.
The community effort that went into the building of the Clock Tower War Memorial is one of many stories that will be told in this display along with the stories of school children collecting 50,000 metal bottle tops and stamp collecting. Efforts both big and small all contributed to meet the needs of those fighting overseas for their country.
The exhibition will continue through to the end of May 2021. Subiaco Museum will be open on ANZAC Day, Sunday 25 April from 9am to 11am.
Subiaco based photographer Denny Roberts will be exhibiting works with an international theme. The exhibition celebrates both the amazing diversity of global cultures and the beauty of individuals who make up those cultures, their images captured in moments of interaction, between the photographer and his subject.
