About the Art Collection Fund
The UOW Art Collection (UOWAC) has an astonishing breadth and diversity and includes a great number of Indigenous works and others of regional, national, and international significance.
What your gift could achieve
We greatly welcome philanthropic support for our ongoing conservation program, so that we can continue to make artworks fully accessible to our students, staff, and visitors. Since most of the collection is spread across many buildings and campuses, with a variety of different environments and needs, it requires a complex and carefully planned schedule of maintenance and protection.
You can support our preservation activities in several areas including:
- Digitising sections of the collection and purchasing UV filtering frames for our photographic works. Estimated cost per UV frame: $450-$3,500, depending on size
- Conserving a particular piece, including cleaning, stabilisation, conservation, and relocation
- Supporting us to employ a part-time conservator who will be responsible for managing the conservation program. Estimated cost: $50,000
