Celebrating Young Collectors
Opens 15-03-2018, closes 11-05-2018
Since 2005 the Young Collectors program at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery has showcased over fifty collections from young Tasmanians. This display revisits two young collectors who have previously shown their collections at TMAG, along with three new young collectors.
The Young Collectors program has displayed an interesting and eclectic range of collections. From sheep tags to seeds and slot cars to shells, this program highlights the varied collecting interests of children.
As part of this program young collectors learn how to prepare their collection for display and how to best display their collections to the public.
Collecting is at the heart of museum practice and the Young Collectors program helps to inspire the next generation of museum curators, collection managers and conservators.
The Celebrating Young Collectors display is part of the 2018 TMAG Children’s Festival.
