• Works of Art On Campus

    Campus loans

    The Collections Management unit manages the loan of works of art to the faculties and non-academic divisions of the University of Melbourne. The suitability of lending works of art to office spaces for extended periods depends upon a range of factors, including light levels, heating, wall space, security and significance. Loans from the collection are made available to Deans, Heads of School, Vice-Principals, Office of the Vice-Chancellor, and when possible board rooms.

    To request a campus loan please contact Robyn Hovey (03) 8344 7933. 


    Institutional loans 

    If you are requesting a work of art for loan in an exhibition please be aware that the Potter only lends to accredited art institutions and not to private individuals or commercial companies. If you would like to request a work of art for loan in an exhibition please send a formal request by email or post to the Potter’s director. All loans are assessed on a case by case basis. Works on paper are not normally loaned for touring exhibitions.

    Relocations and renovations

    The Collections Management unit is responsible for the relocation of any work in the University Art Collection during renovations and relocations. If you are aware that your department building is being renovated or relocated please contact the Collections Manager, Robyn Hovey (03) 8344 7933, as soon as possible.
