“Long, long ago when the universe was newly created, there were times when special things could happen.”
Embark on a journey into the heart of First Nations storytelling in this exhibition of picture book artwork by acclaimed author and illustrator, Helen Milroy. With vivid colours and intricate detail, Crow Baby tells the story of Daisy Crow, born of two spirits – one crow, and one human, who must live between two worlds and, ultimately, make a difficult decision to save both of her families.
Helen Milroy’s stunning illustrations from her newly released picture book, Crow Baby (Fremantle Press, 2023), are displayed alongside draft materials, in this exhibition curated for families.
