Mayor Opening
Mayor of Willoughby with Terry Fogarty

Our new exhibition at Willoughby Museum for the National Trust Heritage Festival, Artistic Voices, was opened by Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney on Sunday 23 April at 2pm.

Curated by Terry Fogarty,the exhibition showcases over 100 individuals who have contributed to the long and rich heritage of artistic endeavours that reflect the cultural diversity of Willoughby City. Their contributions cover a variety of artistic fields, as artists, architects, actors, writers, playwrights, poets, singers, dancers, musicians, photographers, sculptors, puppeteers, film producers or radio or television personalities.

Guests at opening

The exhibition will tell the stories of these notables through large panels and smaller profiles of their key achievements, backed by artefacts from our museum collection, both in the main exhibition room and elsewhere at the museum. We look forward to your next visit to the museum to take in this extensive exhibition with the assistance of our guides.

The museum will be open from 1pm to 4pm on Thursdays and Sundays for this exhibition from 23 April to the end of May and Sunday afternoons thereafter.
