The Edith Cowan University 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 everyday experience of students, staff and the wider community and fostering and promoting local art practice. The University achieves these aims by: exhibiting works in public spaces across its three campuses, making it one of Australia's most accessible collections; acquiring works by donation, gift and purchase; using the collection as a teaching resource; researching and organising touring exhibitions; and commissioning site specific artworks.
