Victorian Artists Society Heritage Renovation Update


 

The Victorian Artists’ Society in Albert Street, East Melbourne, formed in 1870 to provide artists from all walks of life with a place to learn and exhibit their work, has announced a $1.5 million restoration program to ensure the building and Society’s ongoing contribution to Victoria’s next generation of artists.


Eileen Mackley, President of the Victorian Artists’ Society said, commencing with a grant from the Government for the establishment of an art room in 1898, artists raised funds supplemented with private donations to construct the current building.


For over one hundred and thirty years the heritage building has provided an arts learning and community structure for thousands of artists.
