NED: THE EXHIBTION
So, as Joe Journal
enters it's first edition, Ned: the exhibition, enters it's
last, Ned: the exhibtion, closed, for good, last Wednesday, and
it had a lot of Joe photographs, even Joe's faithful armour was
there for a short period.
The exhibtion is
now looking for a more permanent spot, in Kelly Country to host
the spectacular range of Kelly gang relics. As Matt Shore, co -
director of Ned: the exhibtion clearly states:
" It is hard
to believe that the exhibition finished last Wednesday (July 31st)
- nine months have come and gone so very fast! It has been an incredible
year for anybody interested in Australian history, and more particularly
the Kelly story. The last twelve months have seen an amazing array
of items resurface and exhibited, production of the new Heath Ledger
come and go, a controversial photo auction, the Kelly armour 'reunited'
after 122 years and of course the most comprehensive Kelly exhibition
ever staged - which also included the first public exhibition of
Ned Kelly and Joe Byrne's Jerilderie Letter.
The amount of unseen Kelly relics and photographs that have recently
surfaced, and those that are rumored to still exist have truly astounded
and inspired us.
Ned: The Exhibition has been visited by over 120,000 people in nine
months at the Old Melbourne Gaol "
So, Ned: the exhibtion
is finally over, I can still remember the first time I ventured
there, just as the launching dinner began, the ending dinner was
equally as good, a relaxed pleasant night at the Old Melbourne gaol,
ending with the thanks and speeches. Joe Online will remember, respect
and never forget the wonderful exhibtion compacted together by
Matt Shore and Brendan Pearse,
well done fella's! Also check Ned: The Exhibiton out online at www.nedtheexhibition.com
