Mother’s Day at the Duldig Studio, Museum & Sculpture Garden
Enjoy a Mother’s Day morning or afternoon tea in the Museum Gallery & Museum of Karl & Slawa Horowitz-Duldig: a unique experience to view works of art and sculptures in an authentic domestic setting.
Visitors can learn through the art works and sculptures about contribution of artists Karl and Slawa Duldig displayed in the authentic domestic setting of their home: a story of creative lives in Vienna, Singapore and Melbourne; of dramatic escapes, remarkable reunions and unexpected recovery.
Visitors will enjoy a delicious Viennese morning or afternoon tea in the studio gallery where they can view our new exhibition Drawn from the Collection: Highlights and Hidden Gems – which showcases the diversity of art forms, style and materials this creative couple used to create a powerful body of modernist work that communicates stories and ideas about family life, World War 2, displacement, resilience, and survival through art.
The museum celebrates the life of these two artists and tours on Mother’s Day will particularly focus on Slawa Horowitz-Duldig – mother, artist, designer, teacher and inventor of the modern foldable umbrella. Throughout the museum visitors can engage with Slawa’s story through works of art, photographs, domestic settings and archival material.
The museum is open Tuesdays & Thursdays, 1:00pm – 4:00pm.
