About us

USC Art Gallery is a space of exchange where artists, ideas and community come together.

Located at our Sunshine Coast campus, the Gallery delivers exhibitions, programs and educational activities that are shaped by the University’s commitment to freedom of enquiry and expression. The Gallery is responsible for developing and caring for the University art collection—the largest public collection of art on the Sunshine Coast.

Through innovative research, collecting, curating and learning, we encourage participation and dialogue with and for our community of USC students, staff, researchers, artists, alumni and the public about artistic enquiry and its value.

USC Art Gallery is a member of University Art Museums Australia.
