Coveted Cameras
Community Collection Program

5 March - 30 May • During opening hours • Melton Library and Learning Hub

This exquisite collection of antique cameras dates between late 1800’s and 1900, including rare items such as an Art Deco camera inlaid with enamel, a nickel plated Cannon manufactured by Chicago Ferrotype Co and the ever curious Scovill Detective Camera, which pretends not to be a camera at all! 

Local collector and restorer Harry Wilson has been coveting old cameras for 14 years, and is sharing his collection for the first time with City of Melton residents.  See the display anytime during opening hours.

 

Diversity Wave Wall
Artists' Collective of Melton

19 March - 1 May • During Library opening hours • Melton Library and Learning Hub

Artists’ Collective of Melton and local school students have created a rainbow wave with a wall of handmade fluid art tiles to celebrate Harmony Day 2019.

Each tile, made by local students, represents the unique qualities of individuals who made them, showing that, while we are all different, we also share the same desires for respect and equity.
