With more than 1000 diverse artworks, the ACU Art Collection is an invaluable asset to the Australian Catholic University and wider community. Since its inception, the art collection has built and reflected a rich artistic heritage, with high-quality works dating from the 13th century to the present day. Informed by strong Catholic values, it embraces the spiritual, contemplative and human in traditional and contemporary works of art. Representing a wide range of styles and disciplines, the collection showcases Australian, British and European paintings, works on paper, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, mosaics, gold and silversmithing, glass and decorative arts.
