The city's art gallery re-opened this week and will celebrate with a new exhibition which opens on Friday.
Haunting uses the power of water, mist and fog to re-imagine objects from the National Museum of Australia.
"This is an exciting Contemporary Australian Art exhibition which is based on the history of the mighty Murrumbidgee River, so vital to the MIA," gallery co-ordinator Ray Wholohan said.
"This is a fitting way to relaunch our exhibitions and I cannot wait to welcome our patrons back."
Artist Vic McEwan and National Museum curator George Main created the digital works by projecting images from the museum's collection onto the waters of the Murrumbidgee.
Objects include William Farrer's disease and drought-resistant wheat, historical photographs and maps.
"By layering them back into the landscape using light, projection and natural elements, while re-photographing them, we managed to create a series of abstract images which appear as though they were painted with light into the landscape," Mr McEwan said.
Museum manager Raina Savage said safety of patrons and staff was paramount and a stringent regime of health and safety procedures had been put in place.
Those measures include physical distancing, limiting visitor numbers and regular cleaning of surfaces.
Haunting runs from June 5 to August 2.
