ZOONOSES – an infectiously delightful exhibition 

You’ll be green with envy if ZOONOSES is not on your school holidays to-do list. This major touring exhibition by Dr Nicola Hooper is the perfect outing for kids to enjoy and become educated about zoonoses (animal diseases that can infect humans).

Dr Nicola Hooper has taken the darker side of nature and turned it into exquisite, thought-provoking art.

Kids will be thrilled with our hands-on activity space where they can make their own fly sculpture or contribute to the zoonotic wallpaper wall! Also on offer is our popular Great Art Detective, where kids can hunt for clues around the exhibition to receive their very own limited edition exhibition badge.

ZOONOSES Exhibition dates: 2 September – 5 November 2023

ZOONOSES is a touring exhibition of works by Dr Nicola Hooper presented by Logan Art Gallery, Logan City Council, in partnership with Museums & Galleries Queensland. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program and is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Proudly sponsored by Haymes Paint.

Logos featuring: Logan Art Gallery, City of Logan, Museums and Galleries Queensland, Australian Government Queensland Visions of Australia, Queensland Government, Haymes Paint and Fairfax Family Foundation.
