On Wednesday 3 June we launch the much anticipated exhibition, Gifted: 50 Gifts to our University Collections.
The University holds many treasures that have been donated over the years for the benefit of our students, staff and community, and are collected and maintained for sharing with future generations.
This exhibition acknowledges the generosity of those who give to enrich the lives of others. From rare books and butterflies to artwork from Australia's most acclaimed artists, this exhibition will profile 50 such donations that captivate and enhance our working and learning environment.
Exhibition dates: 3 - 20 June 2015
Part of a series of events celebrating the University of Newcastle’s 50th anniversary.
