“Harry Rogers – Inspiring us to travel with Qantas” Exhibition

Exhibition and Shows

3 Feb 2020 to 30 Apr 2020

From 1956 to 1985, artist Harry Rogers created images of travel with Qantas. In 1970, he invented a complete alpha-numeric font called ‘Cyclone’ for the airline and he, more than anybody else, was responsible for the Qantas ‘look’ for the next 15 years. However, he’s probably best-remembered for the advertising he created which affectionately picked up on outstanding features of Qantas destinations and were shown on posters and postcards. Reproductions are still being produced today and Qantas Founders Museum’s first exhibition in 2020 will be the collection of his posters.

This exhibition is free to view.

This event is part of Qantas Founders Museum’s Celebration of the Qantas Centenary Program of Events.

Celebration of the Qantas Centenary Program of Events is funded under the Year of Outback Tourism Events Program.
