On Campus Exhibition Program
The On Campus Exhibition Program offers an ongoing exhibition program to staff and students of Griffith University. Works from the Collection are selected for display throughout the University’s building and environs, in a program designed to foster an appreciation for contemporary art. Approximately 14% of the Collection is on display at any one time, displayed throughout fifty buildings across the five Griffith University campuses. Our policy directive is to put artwork in relatively high-traffic zones so the work is seen by as many people as possible, and contribute to an atmosphere where works from the collection become part of an everyday experience for students and visitors to the campuses.
Griffith University Art Museum welcomes visits from schools, universities and community groups. Our staff can provide free introductory talks and exhibition tours as required.
Education Kits for teachers and students are available for download as applicable. They can be used before, during or after your visit.
