Scenic Rim Museums Events

The Museums Australia Constitution (2002) defines a ‘museum’ as an institution with the following characteristic:

A museum helps people understand the world by using objects and ideas to interpret the past and present and explore the future. A museum preserves and researches collections, and makes objects and information accessible in actual and virtual environments. Museums are established in the public interest as permanent, not-for-profit organisations that contribute long-term value to communities.

The Scenic Rim Museums and Historical Centers that we list below fall into the category of entities that facilitate the preservation, continuation and management of tangible or intangible heritage resources (living heritage and digital creative activity)….[..]

Events at the Margaret Olley Art Centre

MOAC celebrates the career, life and legacy of its namesake, Margaret Olley – Australia’s most celebrated painter of still life and interiors.

MOAC combines exhibitions of paintings and objects, an interactive multi-media drawing activity, research library and education workshop, and is complemented by the Nancy Fairfax Artist in Residence Studio. Central to the MOAC is the recreation of areas of Olley’s famous home studio, principally the Hat Factory and the Yellow Room.

The recreation features original architectural elements such as windows and doors, relocated from Olley’s home studio at 48 Duxford Street, Paddington, Sydney. The interiors are filled with over 20,000 items Olley collected over many years as subject matter for her paintings.

These combined elements offer a rich and dynamic context for Olley’s extensive artistic career.

The home studio recreation is on permanent display while exhibitions of artworks in MOAC will change twice a year.
