Housing a permanent collection, Reflecting Canberra, and a variety of local, national and international exhibitions, CMAG provides a refreshing insight to the integration of social history and the visual arts.
Discover our two suitcases, packed full of a variety of stunning objects made by local artists. Explore the extraordinary nature of ordinary things.
This suitcase contains a range of stunningly designed and made objects in glass, metal, ceramics, plastic and timber. Some of these use traditional techniques and others are made using hi-tech machines and materials
This suitcase contains a series of quirky and exciting objects where the artists have used imaginative approaches to materials. Here you will find toast made from clay, Millennium Bug Teapots and other strange and inspiring objects made from plastic, timber and collected objects.
Available free for loan in 2 – 4 week blocks, including teaching notes, discussion topics and object based activities. Contact the Booking Officer (6207 1775) for more information on borrowing the suitcases, including details of our specially designed preschool teaching notes. The suitcases can be collected from Canberra Museum and Gallery and will fit into the boot of a small hatchback with the back seat folded down, or the boot/back seat of a larger sedan.
