In 1995, USC—or the Sunshine Coast University College as it was then known—purchased its first artwork establishing the USC Art Collection, and by 1997, the first donated artwork was received. From humble beginnings, the USC Art Collection has expanded dramatically over the last two decades in large part due to the generosity of individual donors. Today, close to 600 artworks have been donated to the Collection. While representing only a fraction of the gifts received during this time,  Future Tense: Two Decades of Gifts to the Collection illustrates the impact these gifts have made, and honours benefactors to the Collection by celebrating their remarkable vision in contributing to what has become the most significant public collection of art in the Sunshine Coast region.
