Donations and acquisitions

Acquisitions

Heritage artefacts and contemporary artworks are acquired for the Port Phillip City Collection:

  • by donation
  • by bequest
  • in the case of artworks, through purchase or commission by the City of Port Phillip.

All heritage items proposed for acquisition either by donation or bequest are assessed through a formal process involving City of Port Phillip staff from Arts & Heritage Services, Library Services and Records Management.

Artworks are selected for purchase through a formal process administered by the Art Acquisition Reference Committee. The Committee is chaired by a City of Port Phillip Councillor and includes qualified external representatives and staff. For more information about the committee and the acquisition of contemporary art works contact Art & Heritage services

Donations

The City welcomes bequests and donations of artworks and heritage materials that fall within the collecting guidelines set out in the Port Phillip City Collection Policy.
