Museum of Brisbane


Gadens Art Challenge

With the generous support of our partners and donors, Museum of Brisbane shares the history, tells the stories and showcases the art and artists of our great city with our many visitors every day.

Like so many of our benefactors we are particularly committed to supporting Brisbane’s artists, and our 2017 annual appeal focuses on acquiring a significant artwork from internationally acclaimed Indigenous artist Judy Watson and commissioning a new work from emerging artist Sam Cranstoun.

This is the Museum’s first artwork acquisition appeal and we are grateful for the support of leading law firm Gadens Brisbane. A long-term partner of the Museum and a renowned arts patron, Gadens Brisbane has generously committed to matching, dollar-for-dollar, all appeal donations up to a total value of $20,000.

These two artworks will greatly enrich our Collection’s representation of contemporary Brisbane artists, capture and reflect two poignant moments in our history and leave a lasting legacy to be enjoyed by generations to come.

Your donation, whatever size, is incredibly valuable and we thank everyone whose contribution to the Gadens Art Challenge will help make the acquisition of these two artworks possible.

Please donate by entering your gift amount below, or by downloading our printable donation form.
