As you can imagine, over the past decade or so, the ANU have amassed a pretty epic art collection.

Recent pieces include large-scale contemporary paintings and sculptures given by James and Jacqui Erskine; a super pricey painting by the Chinese artist Zhang Peili Flying Machine (1994) donated by Lois Conor; a gift of personally significant from the household of Rosalie and Ben Gascoigne, donated by their children; a collection of bark paintings given by the eminent scholar Jon Altman, plus gifts given directly by artists such as Brian Blanchflower, Aida Tomescu, John Nixon, Allan Mitelman, Salvatore Zofrea, Philip Spelman and others. As well as all the works by former students… Come take a look.
