Description
In celebration of International Women's Day 2017 this subcollection presents a selection of work purchased by the Museum from women artists. Since 2011 the Museum has had an acquisitions policy of prioritising buying work by women. A total of 66 works by 57 artists have been purchased since 2011. This includes 23 works purchased from $53,195 in cash donations from the museum’s supporters, enabling the acquisition of work from a diverse cultural heritage for study and display.
