Tuesday, 30 August 2011

The TomorrowFund, launched in 2008 to transform the State Art Collection through the acquisition of works of contemporary art, has reached its designated target, receiving pledges totalling $25million.

The Art Gallery of Western Australia has reached their fund raising target with many donations including a pledge of more than $3 million from Andrew and Nicola Forrest.

"In 2008, the State Government contributed $10million to the TomorrowFund, and pledged a further $5million if the gallery could raise $10million of its own," Mr Day said.

Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said the Art Gallery of Western Australia would now receive a promised $5million of State Government funding.
