Transforming the Potter

Potter redevelopment

 

In 2022 the Potter continues 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 mid 2023, 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 2022, while our galleries remain temporarily closed to traditional exhibitions, we are pleased to continue our exhibitions, programs and forums including 21 x 10– a program aimed squarely at shifting the audience experience beyond the walls of the Museum hosted at Arts West on the Parkville campus.
