How do I reference text from wall plaques in a history exhibition?

The exhibition is currently showing at Leichhardt Library as part of the National Trust Heritage Festival, and is funded by the Leichhardt council local history grant. It is titled 'Callan Park Compassion and conflict in the Asylum'. It is written by Burge, R. in assoiciation with 'Friends of Callan Park' organisation. Thanks for your help!

HI Amelia,

I think using the convention for an artwork in a gallery is the most applicable for your situation. I'll cut paste from our advice on that below:

If you are referencing the original artwork itself (not an image created by someone else), the format is: Artist Year, Title, Type of Work, Museum or Gallery, City. You should also use this format if you are using your own image of an original artwork. If an artwork is in a private collection you do not need the city.

Rodin, A. 1886, The lovers, sculpture, Rodin Museum, Paris.


Hope this helps! Let me know if not
