In the spring, Colgate University announced it was returning a collection of artworks to Curtin University in Australia.

Professor Ellen Kraly is back in Australia to witness the opening of the collection of Carrolup Artwork, running from August 2 to October 6 at the John Curtin Gallery at Curtin University.

While there, Kraly spoke with Margaret Throsby of AM Classic Radio about her love of music, the work, and the relationship between Colgate and Curtin University. The entire intimate segment can be heard here.

As Provost Doug Hicks said during a ceremony at Curtin University in May: “We at Colgate University are pleased to have our story now be permanently intertwined with Curtin University and the Carrolup story.”

The story of the exchange was profiled in this  New York Times article, and the journey to Australia back in May was chronicled in this Today Show segment:
