Swinburne Art Collection

The Swinburne Art Collection was established by Swinburne's founder, George Swinburne, more than 100 years ago. The collection is comprised of approximately 200 works including paintings, commissioned portraits, photographs, a specially-commissioned tapestry, furniture and sculptures. Many of the works were created or donated by Swinburne staff, students and alumni.

The majority of the collection is on display in public areas of the University across all three campuses, where it can be accessed and enjoyed by the wider community. Whenever possible a digitally rendered copy of each art work has been made available online.
