North Rotunda

The North Rotunda is an intimate gallery and event space, currently the entrance to Melbourne Out Loud.

The Rotunda provides access to both the Cowen Gallery and the Victoria Gallery.

State Library Victoria acknowledges the generosity of Porter's Paints in supplying the custom colour 'North Rotunda Red' for this gallery.
