THERE is a lot to look forward to at Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) over the coming months, and all of the exciting events can be found in the SAM Public Program, released today.
Of the 32 plus events listed, SAM will also be holding three major exhibits until the end of July including Cornucopia (Saturday, February 27 to Sunday, May 22), 80/80. Eighty Years of SAM The Collection (Saturday, February 6, 2016 to February 2018) and Chen Qiulin. One Hundred Names (Saturday, June 4 to Sunday, July 24).
SAM director, Dr Rebecca Coates said, “The program lets people see what SAM is doing and who we are working with.
“Looking at the front cover, we chose the Campbell’s Soup can as this is part of what makes our region unique. We believe it helps to capture the region’s history and demonstrates the region’s real strengths and unique connections, which are so important.
“As the program unfolds over the coming months, SAM will be developing the program and the community will see more events revealed.
“We are very excited about what is coming up at SAM.”
The bi-annual SAM Public Program is available as a lift out in this edition of The Adviser, or can be picked up from SAM, Welsford Street, Shepparton, at all accommodation providers across Shepparton, local cafés, Eastbank, the Greater Shepparton Visitor Information Centre or can be downloaded from www.sheppartonartmuseum.com.au
