Knox Civic Art Collection Management Policy 2018

The Knox Civic Art Collection has been acquired by commission, purchase, donation or bequest over many years, and is continually growing. The collection requires a clear purpose allowing for the collection to represent a more clearly articulated focus and within agreed selection frameworks and approval guidelines.

The Knox Art Collection Management Policy sits alongside the Knox Public Art Implementation Plan 2018-22 and Public Art Policy, which guide the management of the Art in Public Spaces collection, which relates to artworks in the public realm (usually located within an outdoor civic space).

The policy is based on research into industry standards relating to small art collections, particularly art collections belonging to Australian local governments.

The policy acknowledges that Council has limited display space, with no current public gallery or museum asset. It also reflects the limitations presented by the lack of gallery nor museum standard storage for two-dimensional work, presenting a need to limit the number of items collected annually, and the likelihood of deaccession of those pieces that do not fit well within the policy context.
