'Friends around the Lake' Glorious Days: Australia 1913 special eventWednesday 8 May 2013, 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Australia in 1913 was a young nation, barely 12 years old and full of energy and ambition to build a glorious future. The inauguration of the new Federal Capital in March that year was celebrated as the creation of an ideal city for the ideal society Australia intended to be. Join senior curator Michelle Hetherington for an exclusive look at the objects borrowed from fellow institutions in Canberra. The exhibition features stunning artworks and ordinary objects from the period. Immerse yourself in the music, photographs and newsreel footage of Australian life as it was 100 years ago.
