Coming soon: Mabo art exhibition

Eddie Koiki Mabo Library is proud to present an exhibition of the works of Sharon Banjo

(May 21st - June 15th)

The exhibition will be held on the ground floor of the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library, and is open to the public during Library opening hours. Sharon's artworks will be available for purchase.

Each year the James Cook University hosts an exhibition by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artist to celebrate the official naming of the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library and the official launch of the University’s Reconciliation Statement on 21 May 2008.

Nationally significant dates that occur during the exhibition include National Reconciliation Week (May 27th to June 3rd), National Sorry Day (May 26th) and Mabo Day (June 3rd).
