Integrating contemporary Australian art into the everyday experience of campus life is a proud tradition at Murdoch University. Art has the potential to bridge our worlds, harness the wisdom of our different views, engage our imagination to explore new ways of thinking, and create experiences that can be shared by all people in our community.
