Travelling exhibitions

Travelling exhibitions from Museum of Applied Art and Sciences are designed for a range of venues and audiences including galleries, museums, libraries and small local venues. Exhibition packages generally include the display and also promotional and educational material. In many cases, Museum staff can assist with installation, opening, publicising and dismantling of the exhibition. The level of security, climate control and size of venue required by each show varies and is assessed by a facilities report.

There are seven categories: deep sky; wide-field; solar system: high-res (field of view less than one moon-width); solar system: wide field (field of view greater than one moon-width); animated sequences: scientific; and animated sequences: aesthetic. This year’s open theme was ‘The Moon’. A Photo Editor’s Choice Award was added in 2012. The discretionary Innovation Prize was awarded in 2013.
