I have written many posts featuring MONA (Museum of New and Old Art) – because the building and surrounds are stunningly beautiful and the museum contents and activity options provide a unique experience. I am not surprised when Lonely Planet approves a visit and hundreds of thousands of tourists vote with their feet and enjoy a day soaking in all that MONA has to offer.
Now new plans have been drawn up to expand and develop this Tasmanian icon. A recent Mercury newspaper provides photos and information.
Once again the museum environment will focus our attention on the glorious Derwent River as the building extensions reshape our vision of that part of the Derwent River’s edge. Congratulations to all involved.
It will be interesting to observe how and if this all comes together.
One of the positives I take from this is that David Walsh is in control and not a government committee – so yet again, I expect us to have something new that is wonderfully exciting.
