The art collection supports local and Western Australian artists, records and reflects the cultural heritage and lifestyle of the community and enhances the City of Melville's civic and community buildings.
The collection is displayed within City of Melville Libraries, Community and Recreation Centres, and the Civic Centre.
The City of Melville has built a unique textile collection. Catalogues profiling some of the textile artworks can be downloaded.
Artworks from the collection are also exhibited from time to time in curated exhibitions:
- 'TILT - a Retrospective' will take place in December 2018, featuring a number of works in the City's collection procured from previous TILT exhibitions.
- In 2015, Heathcote Museum & Gallery hosted COLLECTED: Selected works from the City of Melville Art Collection, an exhibition that showcased around 40 artworks spanning over 50 years.
An online gallery is also available for the public to view the Art Collection.
