The First Nations Foyer, located at the entry to the museum features Bindal/Wulgurukaba Wakka Wakka artist Niketa Law’s contemporary piece Wulgurukaba Country.

Niketa’s artwork is a vivid interpretation of the land and sea environments that make Townsville unique.

As a self-taught artist, Niketa works both in traditional and modern digital mediums, her pieces and creations not only showcased in galleries and public spaces around Australia, but also worn by thousands of people in a collaborative clothing line Consequence of Change, drawing international attention.

The new mural sits adjacent to the museum’s Acknowledgement to Country panel that welcomes visitors and acknowledges the Wulgurukaba people, Traditional Owners of the land on which the museum stands, as well as neighbouring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Townsville region.
