Elvis Presley, Andy Warhol and Ned Kelly will help celebrate the National Gallery of Australia's 25th birthday.
In a New York-style presentation, iconic images from the gallery's historic collection - including these familiar faces - are being projected on to the building each night in a kaleidoscopic montage. The slideshow features more than 60 well-known images and works of art including Australian landscapes, impressionist works and pop art.
Officially launched on Tuesday, the rolling light display appears on the southern facade of the five-storey gallery overlooking Canberra's Lake Burley Griffin and has drawn astonished crowds. "It's a unique and different project aimed at reinvigorating the National Gallery and making people aware of key works of art after hours," Mr Hayward said.
