Where is it: Stanley Place, Cultural Precinct, South Bank, Brisbane
What's it all about: The Queensland Art Gallery (QAG) and the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) both have great art but focus on slightly different styles. They are known collectively as QAGOMA.
How can I join in: Visit the galleries anytime, or as there are regularly changing exhibitions, keep an eye out for one that appeals to you!
Tell me more: There always seems to be really fun exhibitions on at GOMA. Heaps of interactive exhibits and opportunities for the kids to contribute to the displays be doing a bit of their own artwork. We're not sure if they are feeling any inspiration to become artists, but we do know that they have lots of fun! Their 'Toddler Tuesday' program, suitable from 18 mths through to 4 years, is always lots of fun and the kids just love it, but be sure to book early in advance as it's very popular and spaces are limited! The program looks to engage with the kids and lets them identify the artwork, before have a go themselves at creating their own artwork! The building houses a number of different exhibition and performance halls, theatres, interactive rooms, lounges, restaurant and cafe and also a gift shop. The exhibitions change regularly and there is always something which to experience that will entertain, inspire or even confuse, but however the art makes you feel, we're sure that you will have a great day out when you visit GOMA!
