Art Strikes Back

Event Information

The iconic Ms. Redheads has adorned Australian matchboxes for more than 75 years.

In celebration, Redheads Matches hosted a FREE public exhibition of Redheads commercial art, spanning from the 1940’s to today. The event took place at the State Library of Victoria, Isabella Fraser Room.

AMCCS (The Australian Match Cover Collectors Society) attended and presented some of their vast collection!

Our brand ambassadors The BBQ School smoked up some FREE delicious pork sliders on the Library lawn and there was also face painting and balloons for the  kids!

In 2000, Redheads held an Art Strikes Back event at Southland Mall. Deborah Halpern was commissioned to create a piece of work, which she named “Ms Redheads”. Ms Halpern was in attendance at the 2019 Art Strikes Back along with her commissioned piece of art from 2000.
