Selected works from The Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artwork presented by the John Curtin Gallery
The Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artwork was generously donated to Curtin University, Perth, Australia in May 2013 for educational and research purposes by Colgate University, Hamilton, New York, USA. This recently rediscovered collection of artwork by Aboriginal children from the Stolen Generations, was created between 1946 and 1950 at the Carrolup Native Settlement in Western Australia’s Great Southern region. Curtin University is honoured to have the opportunity to make this first step in their shared ambition with Colgate University to provide on going access to these artworks – especially to Noongar communities throughout the Great Southern region of Western Australia.
