University Art Collection
The mission of the Charles Sturt University Art Collection is to serve the University and its regional communities through the establishment of a quality collection of twentieth century Australian art works.
As well as establishing a quality art collection, the Art Curator is charged with promoting the entire collection for research, teaching and learning purposes. This is achieved through the display of works chosen from the collection in various public exhibitions throughout the year.
The CSU Art Collection is a part of the Collections Australia Network (CAN). Five works by the following artists have been selected from the Collection to appear on the CAN website:
Art Collection employees are administratively and physically located in the CSU Regional Archives within the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research). The Art Curator reports to the Manager of the CSU Regional Archives and University Art Collection.
- The CSU Art Collection has been short listed for the second year running in the Museums Australia Publication Design Awards 2010.
The entry is the catalogue for the 2009 exhibition MONOuno.
The winner will be announced on September 29th, in Melbourne.
- The Art Collection held two major exhibitions in April 2009: More Beasties at the Joyes Hall Gallery, CSU and MONOuno at the Margaret Carnegie Gallery, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.
These exhibitions contribute to the many events celebrating the 20th anniversary of CSU and highlight the University's links with the community of Wagga Wagga and the Riverina region.
- The 2008 exhibition publication for the Art Collection, Dianne Fogwell ELEMENTS, designed by Eunice Song, jointly won Category A of The Museums Australia Flagship Awards Program: The 2009 Multimedia and Publication Design Awards.
The judges comments were: 'being a book about a book, it has a sensibility to the artists medium, the designer really understands typography'.
