Established in 1967, Rockhampton Art Gallery begins a new phase of its history in late 2021 with the opening of Rockhampton Museum of Art.
The 4,700 sqm building on Rockhampton’s historic Quay Street, will become the home of the city’s nationally significant art collection as well as being a place of community and gathering, where connections are forged, skills acquired, a love of art nurtured and history celebrated.
Delivering for, and servicing the broader Central Queensland region (a region that spans from Mackay, Gladstone and Rockhampton through to the Gemfields and the inland city of Emerald and out to Longreach), Rockhampton Museum of Art will increase the community’s exposure to the arts and culture through a range of innovative onsite and offsite activities and opportunities.
Rockhampton Museum of Art will engage actively with the regional community and its visitors, inspiring and enriching their lives through programs that encourage participation in, and appreciation of, the visual arts. It will strive to provide the community with access to national practicing artists and arts, to ignite the arts and culture as an interest area for the current and next generations, whilst remembering the past.
Rockhampton Museum of Art aims to be a powerhouse of creativity, a meeting place of arts and education, and Queensland’s leading Regional Gallery.
Rockhampton Museum of Art is funded by the Australian Government through the Building Better Regions Fund; the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and through the Building Our Regions program; and Rockhampton Regional Council.
