Open Weekend 2021
TarraWarra Museum of Art puts the health and safety of visitors and staff as its highest priority. In light of the COVID-19 restrictions announced by the Victorian Government, we regret to announce that Open Weekend 2021 has been cancelled. The Museum will also temporarily close to the public as of 5pm Friday 12 February 2021.
Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for further updates as they become available. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you all back to TarraWarra Museum of Art soon.
TarraWarra Museum of Art’s Open Weekend returns in 2021, with two days of free Museum entry, a major outdoor installation by Minna Gilligan and a free tote bag printmaking workshop with local artist Bronwyn Ward!
Bookings essential to manage capacity and keep our event COVIDSafe. Tickets are required for each person in your group, including children. To reserve a place in a workshop, book your workshop ticket in addition to your Museum entry ticket.
> Six Flags, a site-specific outdoor installation by Melbourne-based artist Minna Gilligan, accompanied by a free zine publication. Drawing on the idea of flags as symbols of unity, strength and community, six full-height flagpoles flying large-scale, fabric flags will transform the Museum grounds.
> a FREE printmaking workshop with local artist Bronwyn Ward. Make monoprints of grass, twigs, ferns, fronds, and leaves on a tote bag that you can use and wear with pride! Daily 11am and 1pm sessions for children aged 5-16 years*, and 3pm session for adults (bookings essential). *All children must be supervised by a parent/guardian (parents/guardians do not need a workshop ticket but will be required to sign-in on the day).
> FREE entry to Looking Glass: Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce, an exhibition of works themed on the monumental elements of earth, water, fire and air by Aboriginal artists Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce.
> Plus, bring along a picnic to enjoy on our beautiful Museum grounds, grab a coffee from Oscar Vintage Coffee Van, or relax with a glass of wine from TarraWarra Estate. If you’d prefer to leave the catering to someone else, pre-book a table in the Restaurant or reserve a picnic hamper with TarraWarra Estate, bookings essential.
Open Weekend is a free, family-friendly event supported by Yarra Ranges Council.
