50 years of art

Monash University has been collecting contemporary Australian art for most of its 50-year history. Today, the Monash University Museum of Art is as a leading public art museum and custodian of an outstanding collection. Based at the Clayton campus, there are plans for a new presence on the Caulfield campus. The 1500 piece collection covers the work of some of Australia's most influential artists - from Fred Williams and Howard Arkley to Tracey Moffatt and Daniel von Sturmer.
