Bayside Art and Heritage Collection Review

The Art and Heritage Collection held by Bayside City Council is an important way of sharing the history and sense of community, enriching public spaces and promoting art and artists in the Bayside community. From time to time we review the collection, so it can be refreshed and improved.

We are calling out for anyone who donated costumes and textiles to Black Rock House and Billilla Historic Mansion in the 1970s to contact us as we begin the process to review and remove items from the collection (deaccession).

Please contact Assistant Curator, Nicole Salvo 03 9261 7110 or via email by 30 June if you have donated a textile item you wish to be returned.
