THIS is the last chance to catch the Shepparton Art Museum’s major collection exhibition Dance Me to the End of Love, which is set to close February 11.
For visitors, the end of the exhibition means a farewell to the public display of several pivotal SAM collection items, including Sam Jinks’ Woman and Child and Penny Byrne’s Four Horsemen of the 21st Century Apocalypse. These works will re-enter the SAM collection store, where they will be documented for the museum’s growing digitisation archive in addition to receiving conservation works to ensure their long-term preservation, where needed.
“This past year, we’ve been delighted by the reception of this immense exhibition. Dance Me to the End of Love returned Woman and Child and many other renowned works from the SAM Collection to our gallery, and it’s been wonderful to see people return over again to see the work and to bring along friends and family to share the experience,” said SAM CEO, Melinda Martin, on the exhibition closing.
“We encourage everyone to visit SAM before the exhibition’s final day on 11 February to experience this touching display and visit their favourite work one last time before it re- enters the collection.”
Dance Me to the End of Love is currently on display on Level 1 of SAM with free entry.
