6 February 2012 | Victoria’s Shepparton Art Museum, also known as SAM, will officially reopen on 17 February 2012, following an eight-month redevelopment.

The $1.9 million redevelopment saw the installation of state of the art LED lighting and climate control in six new galleries, built to house SAM’s expanding collection. Currently numbering over 3000 works, SAM’s collection mainly features contemporary Australian art and historic and contemporary Australian ceramics.

After the official launch event, SAM will open to the public on 18 February 2012 with free show bags, artist workshops and guided tours of the collection.

Shepparton Art Museum is at 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton, Victoria.
