ECU Art Collection
The ECU Art Collection is a dynamic, constantly-evolving reflection of the best in Australian and Western Australian art.
It is built on a strong philosophical commitment to integrating art into the experience of students, staff and the wider community, and fostering and promoting local art practice.
The ECU Art Collection is funded by ECU and depends on the generosity of sponsors, donors and supporters to maintain its exhibition and education programmes as well as its special projects.
We are also extremely fortunate to have individuals who donate their art through the Government’s Cultural Arts Program.
This program encourages donations of culturally-significant items from private collections to public art galleries and museums by offering donors the following tax incentives for their gifts:
- deduction for the market value of gifts;
- exemption from capital gains tax; and
- the option to apportion their deduction over a period for five years.
By making a donation of a piece of artwork you will be influencing the shape and direction of this unique art collection.
