The Costly Rush

Crucial Message in Art Exhibition

Yamba Museum’s latest exhibition at The Old Kirk is unlike any other – Unveiling the canvas of consciousness, Myra James’s YOLO Art Exhibition brings forth a vivid collection of over 50 thought provoking exhibits, primarily paintings, aimed at young and learner drivers.

However, all drivers occasionally need a wake-up call! Embracing the spirit of “You Only Live Once,” this exhibition transcends artistic boundaries to impart a crucial message about responsible driving. Through the lens of creativity, YOLO captures the risks of poor driving behaviour, shedding light on potential consequences, from bad habits to distractions.
