Comment on National Aboriginal Art Gallery: Anzac Oval off the table by Michael Dean.

We keep hearing about how much it will cost to build, but does that include the artwork that needs to be on display? Has that been purchased yet? And how much is it expected to cost to run this thing per year? A lot of unanswered questions but nice artist impressions in the advocate, paid by the taxpayer of course.

Can lessons be learned regarding the Art Gallery 2018? Curiouser and curiouser.
