OPR Supports Mid-West Aboriginal Artists with 'Good Heart'
OPR promoted the development of the inaugural Good Heart Exhibition in 2008, helping to bring the vision of local Aboriginal artists to reality.
Through its involvement with the exhibition OPR aims to support mid-west Aboriginal communities and help create a self sufficient business enterprise for the region's artists.
Now in its third year the community project has been a runaway success, with the first two exhibitions generating around $120 000 in sales.
