Success: Fund something you can’t see—collection storage upgrade

The first stage of Geelong Gallery’s collection storage upgrade campaign has raised $25,338 through the support of 104 community donors during our recent 30-day Pozible campaign.

Fund something you can’t see has ensured the Gallery's back-of-house upgrade which will increase painting storage by 25%, demonstrably improve access to the collection for Gallery staff, students, art historians and researchers, and ensure the continuation of best practice in collection and cultural heritage management. Funds raised wil deliver the purchase and installation of 15 museum-grade painting racks, a vertical shelving system for framed works on paper (tills), improved shelving for decorative arts storage, a dedicated area for the processing of inward and outward collection movements which doubles as a viewing area, and a preparation table for the mounting of works on paper.

This project is endorsed by Creative Partnerships Australia’s fund-matching scheme Plus1. Every dollar raised will be matched, up to $50,000. Geelong Gallery is working with additional private donors and Estates and is confident the full $50,000 will be raised. Contact us at to find out how you might get involved.
