Australia, Culture and Travel to the Land of Arts

Australia is experiencing some good things in light of the other economic woes of the world. Australia, cultural and travel to the land of arts can be transformative when considering the rich diversity of the arts that exist there. Take for instance Gurrumul Yunupingu from the Gumatj nation. Gurrmul is a musician who has been blind from birth, and is an outstanding acoustic guitar player and singer. In addition to Gurrumul, there are other well known artists, (and not so well known artists) who come from the land down under.

 

 

We all know artists such as Cate Blanchett, and there are so many new museums in Australia that are extraordinary. Take for example the “Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania.”

Consider the new Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania (MONA) which the New York Times called “the best museum you’ve never heard of”. The bunker-like structure, which opened in 2011, looks like it emerges from the banks of the River Derwent outside of Hobart and exhibits more than 400 artistic works across three floors of gallery space. It was the brainchild of Tasmanian millionaire and professional gambler, David Walsh, who wanted to display his private collection in what he called a “temple to secularism” and a “subversive Disneyland”. (From BBC-Travel).

Australia, culture and travel to the land of arts is one trip you had better star for your list of places to go. The diversity of people, culture, art, and place, is to be appreciated right now.  You can choose to wait, but you might miss everything that has grown up in the past decade that embraces the talent, and treasure of Australia’s Artists.
