|11 July 2011 | The Shepparton Art Gallery will reopen under the name SAM (short for Shepparton Art Museum) in February 2012 as part of a $1.98 million upgrade. |
The redevelopment will include new collection galleries and education programs as well as the installation of LED lighting.
“It is hoped that by rebranding the gallery to SAM that it will appeal to a broader demographic of the community, and it will also create a point of difference from other regional galleries,” says Michael Polan, the Greater Shepparton deputy mayor and chair of the Art Gallery Advisory Committee.
