Powerhouse Museum Caring for Country exhibition

The Schools Reconciliation Challenge 2020 – Caring for Country finalists artwork is on exhibition on level 2 of the Powerhouse Museum.

The diversity of media in last year’s challenge included installations to mixed media which utilised many local elements of country including ochre, bark, leaves, collage, pencil sketches, painting and sculpture.

Many works impressed beyond imagery with artists wise words and deep feelings of care for our Country, including concern about pollution, fires, flooding, drought and land clearing, Other popular themes were custodianship, plant diversity and recognition, respecting and learning from Elders.

Be sure to see the artwork of incredibly talented student finalists while it still lasts!
