Brisbane Galleries & Museums
Brisbane has a reputation as an art-loving place. A higher percentage of the Local population visits galleries and museums than in any other Australian capital city.
I think I know why. It is so easy! There are at least half a dozen Gallery or Museum spaces open at various times of the day in the Southbank area alone, including GOMA, the Qld Art Gallery, the State Library, the Qld Museum, Griffith university Gallery, and a Griffith uni Museum that I read about but have not had time to search out yet.
This embarrassment of Art riches just keeps on going in the city, with the Brisbane Museum at City Hall, and one of my favorites, the QUT Art Gallery that is reached by walking through the edge of the City Botanic Gardens at the end of George St. We usually make a day of it with a picnic in the gardens and a visit to the gallery.
There are a host of Art spaces in the Valley, and West End, and according to the City Life website, the regional areas around Brisbane are not missing out either. So go and feast your eyes, free art is everywhere.
