UQ Art Museum
Year in Review 2017
Twenty-nine students worked alongside professional Art Museum staff in curatorial, registration, advancement, front-of-house, education, finance and marketing areas, as volunteers, interns, and scholarship recipients.
More UQ students than ever before (nearly 800) used the Alumni Friends of UQ Collection Study Room to get close to art and explore its relevance to their lives and disciplines.
Our new Student Engagement Council, comprising UQ students from multiple disciplines, contributed energy and new ideas to help shape an even better, more relevant Art Museum.
The incredible kindness of our donors funded six summer and winter scholarships.
Donor wishes were fulfilled when we brought the Kinnane Endowment to life beyond the city limits through a cross-institutional partnership in Mackay.
Artwork donated to the UQ Art Collection made a vital contribution to our holdings of contemporary Australian art.
“I’m an Adjunct Professor in Architecture at UQ and although I do many things for the School in this role, I see my donation as reinforcing my sense of belonging."— Michael Rayner AM
