A feasibility study on a new Shepparton Art Museum will take place following the announcement of $125,000 from the Regional Growth Fund today.
Deputy Premier Peter Ryan visited Shepparton for the announcement and the study will identify and assess options for the growth of SAM, including the viability of a new museum. It will also provide recommendations to address the current constraints and limitations of SAM.
Greater Shepparton mayor Jenny Houlihan said SAM is currently facing space constraints and welcomed the study.
"The specific needs of SAM, such as the growth of its collections, exhibitions, public and education programs, will form part of the study," Cr Houlihan said.
"The study should provide a clear picture about the ability of a new SAM to propel an arts-led economic and social development for our region."
