Impact & engagement

Exhibition of artworks on campus

Artworks from the UOW Art Collection are displayed at various locations across all of our main Australian campus sites which includes Wollongong, Innovation Campus, Shoalhaven, Bateman's Bay, Bega, Southern Highlands, Southern Sydney, South Western Sydney and Sydney CBD. Students, staff and visitors to the university regularly come into contact with our artworks in the many meeting rooms, reception areas and function spaces of the university. Members of the public can also view a selection of works from the collection by:

  • Visiting the UOW Library on the main campus where our most recent acquisitions are regularly displayed. 
  • Walking the sculpture trail of the main Wollongong campus where The Collection’s outdoor sculptures are located.
  • Visiting the UOW Gallery at the main UOW campus where exhibitions are regularly curated out of the Art Collection.

Senior UOW staff are able to request works for display in common areas, meeting rooms and reception areas of their faculty, department or unit. Please see the UOW intranet for more details on how to apply for a campus loan and for advice on site suitability, waiting times and display priorities.


Digitising the Collection for online access

We aim to provide ever greater access to the artworks in the UOW Art Collection and are helping to achieve this through the ongoing digitization of our art collection. This important work requires a slow and precise photographic process as well as tracking down artists (or their representatives) for permission to show their works on our website. We expect it will take a number of years for us to photograph all the works and many more to track down all artists for the permissions required. We welcome any assistance that artists held in the Collection can provide in this regard.

The first works to be digitised and made available online can be seen in our online gallery.


External Loans 

The UOWAC often loans works to other registered galleries and institutions. Please contact the Collection Manager directly with your request.
