One Million Stars Exhibition

Newcastle Museum
Workshop Way, Honeysuckle, NSW, 2300

The community and media are invited to attend an opening for the One Million Stars exhibition at Newcastle Museum from 10.30am on Thursday 25 May.

Visitors to Newcastle Museum will be able to see a selection of the handmade stars strung from the ceiling and draped around the Museum’s Earthball in the Supernova Gallery.

The exhibition will be on at the Museum until Sunday 25 June 2017.

The One Million Stars to End Violence Project began as artist Maryann Talia Pau’s personal response to the rape and murder of Jill Meagher in Melbourne in 2012.

In the Hunter Region, a small group, initiated by Libby Levey, began meeting at Timeless Textiles on Hunter Street each Thursday to teach people how to make stars. Workshops were conducted at a number of venues in the area and star-making groups multiplied.

Some people made stars at home and delivered them to Timeless Textiles. The aim was to make 10,000 stars in the Hunter region as part of the One Million Stars which will be on display at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast next year.

WHAT:  Opening for One Million Stars Exhibition
WHERE:  Newcastle Museum
WHEN:   10.30am, Thursday 25 May 2017 until Sunday 25 June 2017.

NOTE: The Newcastle Museum closes for some public holidays. Please contact the museum directly to avoid disappointment.
