In 2018, ANU alumnus Craig Edwards made a landmark gift of Indigenous art by donating a remarkable collection of 124 Western Desert art paintings.

In recent years, the ANU Art Collection has greatly benefited from the generosity of donors who value the cultural, visual and intellectual impact of art on both the ANU and broader communities.

The cover of this report is graced by a detail from Sidney Nolan's Riverbend, which was donated to ANU in 1965 and is now on permanent display in a purpose-built space at the Drill Hall Gallery.

Such inspirational acts of philanthropy are celebrated throughout this report with images of just some of the artworks which have been donated by our generous supporters.

Read below a selection of stories that celebrate your impact on our University.
