'We are delighted to welcome Coloursmith by PPG Taubmans as  Colour Partner for Museums Victoria. Our exhibitions and experiences fuel imaginations and provide a deeper understanding of the world we live in. Together, our experts will create truly wondrous experiences to inspire visitors every day,' said Romina Calabro, Director, Development and Commercial Operations, Museums Victoria.

'There is a strong alignment between both Coloursmith and Museums Victoria,' said David Nicholls PPG Taubmans Commercial Director, Australia. 'Coloursmith makes colour creation and selection accessible to all by allowing anyone to create colour using personal inspiration from the environment around them and bringing these colours to life at home with PPG Taubmans paint products. Museums Victoria’s spaces and exhibitions enable people of all ages to immerse themselves in the historical and modern world, enriching our lives with knowledge and perspective. These experiences created by the museum and with colour are personal to all of us. This is what makes our collaboration really special.'

The partnership will draw inspiration from Museums Victoria’s galleries and spaces, and the 17 million+ objects in the State Collection, to create colour-filled collaborations throughout the year.

Coloursmith by PPG Taubmans is the official  Colour Partner for Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs, which opens at Melbourne Museum on 12 March, 2022. 

67 million years in the making, the world's most complete and finely preserved Triceratops will be revealed for the first time with a monumental new exhibition spread across two levels of Melbourne Museum.

Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs will immerse visitors in a lost world, exploring the incredible story of the Triceratops. Experience the thriving environments through which the Triceratops roamed, meet the creatures Horridus lived alongside, and see what became of the survivors of the Cretaceous.

Museums Victoria’s exhibition designers used specially selected Coloursmith by Taubmans paints to enhance the experience of coming face to face with the jaw-dropping specimen that is Horridus the Triceratops. Coloursmith by PPG Taubmans have also collaborated with Museums Victoria’s science and palaeontology experts to curate a special range of Coloursmith colours, ‘Colours of the Cretaceous’. 

Available from the end of January, this limited-edition collection is inspired by the environment of the Cretaceous period, when Triceratops roamed the earth. ‘Colours of the Cretaceous’ will be available at the Museums Victoria store, PPG Taubmans Trade Stores and Bunnings stores nationally for a limited time.
