AGWA Collection

Your State Art Collection

The State Art Collection is Western Australia’s greatest visual art asset. Since the first work of art was purchased in 1895, the AGWA Collection has grown into the finest public art collection in Western Australia of more than 18,000 works. One of the Collection's key strengths is its holdings of works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and its representation of Western Australian art and artists. Twentieth-century Australian and British paintings and sculpture are also a particular strength. Each year, the Collection grows by 150-400 works, largely through the generous support of AGWA’s Foundation Members and private donations.
