Here at USC we believe art has a powerful educative function.
Contemporary artists are the barometer of our society and their work captures the complexities and the challenges of the world we live in. USC supports the work of contemporary artists through exhibition and by collecting their work to the USC Art Collection.
USC Art Gallery and the USC Art Collection benefits from the generosity of artists, lenders, donors, philanthropic partners, funding bodies and sponsors. In its history, USC has received visionary philanthropic support. In 2004, a purpose-built gallery opened on USC’s Sunshine Coast campus funded exclusively by our community of supporters.
New philanthropic partners, patrons and supporters are always welcome as we work to provide meaningful opportunities for our communities to connect with the University through contemporary art.
For further information or to discuss sponsorship and philanthropic opportunities please contact Kate Evans, Senior Development Manager.
Every donation, no matter how large or small, will assist with the growth and care of the USC Art Collection. One off donations are welcome and donations over A$2 are tax deductible.
USC is the custodian of the largest public collection of art in the Sunshine Coast region—the USC Art Collection.
Artworks from the Collection are drawn on for exhibition at USC Art Gallery and other public institutions throughout Australia, used in teaching and learning at the University and with visiting school groups, and displayed across USC’s expanding network of campuses for the enjoyment of our communities.
A gift of artwork can be given as a direct gift, a Cultural Gift via the Australian Government Cultural Gifts Program, or as a Bequest.
University art holdings constitute a significant quota of our nations cultural heritage, and when you give art to the USC you are contributing to a vital resource that supports our university students in their learning, benefits our academic staff in their teaching, and is an unsurpassed cultural asset for our communities.
Contact Megan Williams, Manager, USC Art Gallery to discuss your gift of art.
