Fund something you can’t see—collection storage upgrade
Geelong Gallery has the space to publicly display only 3% of the 6,000 paintings, works on paper and objects in its care, resulting in a large percentage of the collection being stored. Now is the moment to address inefficient storage systems, increase storage capacity, and ensure our custodianship of the collection meets 21st century museum standards and provides excellent long-term preservation for future generations.

The first stage of Geelong Gallery’s collection storage upgrade is Fund something you can’t see—a campaign to support 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.
