Some of the major artworks at the historic Bundanon property and art centre near Nowra in New South Wales have been moved to a safer location due to the bushfire threat. The Bundanon Trust has indicated that more artworks may be moved after the Currowan bushfire came close to the property, which was gifted to the nation by artist Arthur Boyd and his wife in 1993. Bundanon’s $43m art collection include works by Boyd, Sidney Nolan and Charles Blackman. Meanwhile, poor air quality due to smoke from bushfires prompted the closure of art museums in Canberra on 5 January.
