New Journeys Broad Horizons is the work of Port Macquarie art practitioner Lucy Frost who was commissioned for the project. The exhibition focuses on bringing selected items from the Museum's collection to life in the 21st century. The exhibition considers both the journeys of the objects and Lucy's personal journey, and includes interactive elements. The exhibition is supported by Create NSW's Arts and Cultural Funding Program. New Journeys Broad Horizons can be viewed at the Port Macquarie Museum, 22 Clarence Street, Port Macquarie, located in Port Macquarie's cultural precinct. The Museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm. The exhibition runs until the end of October.
