Now a committed board member for many not-for-profit organisations that promote equity and improving social policy, Professor Edwards has stayed connected with the Art Museum and its collection she has helped to foster over many years as a donor.
‘Its unique collection of artworks have become a distinctive and much-valued part of Flinders as a cultural institution and we should support it for the benefit of staff, students and the wider community.’
With an interest in supporting work by Indigenous artists and female artists, Professor Edwards hopes that by donating to the acquisition of new works, she will contribute to the creative development of the collection and the activities of the Art Museum.
The Flinders University Museum of Art now has the opportunity to build its collection with a significant new acquisition, a collaborative series of ten black and white photographs overlaid with coloured drawings. The Forgotten Wars – Series II is by award winning, South Australian trained artists, James Tylor and Laura Wills.
The Forgotten Wars – Series II will be on display in the foyer of Flinders University’s city campus at 182 Victoria Square / Tarntanyangga, Adelaide until Thursday 26 September.
