20 Years in Fred's Footsteps Display
Check out this Fred Hollows display and discover what it would be like to view the world with cataracts. Twenty one years after Professor Fred Hollows passed away, Orange City Library is hosting a special touring display that celebrates the life and work of the late eye surgeon. It will be on display in the library from December 9, 2013 to January 7, 2014.
Professor Hollows’ widow, Gabi Hollows, hopes the exhibition will offer the public an opportunity to learn more about Fred’s dream of eradicating avoidable blindness and improving Indigenous health. It will be on display in the library from December 9, 2013 to January 7, 2014.
Waste to Art Travelling Display
The SIMS Metal Waste to Art program is celebrating with a travelling poster display of winning entries. Through the program, thousands of people across the Central West – from pre-school aged children to professional artists – have tried their hand at turning junk into creative masterpieces. Along the way they’ve saved tonnes of scrap from landfill and helped challenge people’s perceptions about ‘rubbish’. Posters are on display at Orange City Library until 28 November.
