Transforming the Potter

Potter redevelopment / opening hours

In 2020 the Potter continues its significant transformation. Key to this change is the Museum’s ambitious redevelopment by internationally renowned firm Wood Marsh Architecture, with the generous support of the Ian Potter Foundation.

This major capital works project will see an expansion of the Museum’s footprint through the creation of teaching studios for Object-Based Learning from the University Art Collection, a public programs space, a revitalised Collections gallery, and a new teaching gallery.

Due for launch in late 2020, the new Ian Potter Museum of Art will also have a bold new entrance on the University’s campus, a café and outdoor area in the Museum’s forecourt, and an elegant new foyer designed specifically for opening events.

In 2020, while our galleries remain temporarily closed to traditional exhibitions, we are pleased to continue Inside Out – a program aimed squarely at shifting the audience experience beyond the walls of the Museum.
