Support CAM to support artists

Central Victoria has an exceptional community of artists and art lovers. CAM brings together artists and communities of this region and beyond, creating an arts institution of national relevance. CAM is unique in connecting living artists with its historical and museum collection.
We warmly invite you to support the very core of CAM: exhibiting living artists within the context of an historical collection. Your support enables CAM to deliver a vibrant calendar of exhibitions, artist commissions, public programs and care for the collection of living and historical artists.

Since 2019, CAM

exhibited living First Nations artists with individual works and commissioned full exhibitions (27 artists, 3 solo exhibitions and commissions) 

presented 5 solo exhibitions for early career artists including artist fee, curatorial support

curated survey exhibitions linking contemporary mid-career artists with CAM's renowned historical collection

commissioned new work by local and national artists (14 artists)

presents 2 biennial prizes (174 living artists exhibited)

provides professional development for artists – artist talks and workshops

presents inspiring exhibitions from beyond the region – new work, new methods, new ideas

enables access to new audiences and collectors for living artists

engaged our community with old and new art when its doors were closed, through publishing 72 reflections and interviews with artists 

The recently announced Victorian Government investment of $6million towards the heritage building will directly enable universal access to the entry of the museum and provide improvements to the ailing infrastructure. It will also support the next stage of development within the Masterplan.

This investment will underpin CAM's work with living artists, providing greater access and interpretation of the collection – bringing artists, the museum collection and our many communities and histories together.
