The Samstag Museum of Art is located on North Terrace at the University of South Australia's city west campus. It has been named in honour of two distinguished American benefactors to Australian culture, whose bequest provides opportunities for Australian artists to study overseas. Our wide-ranging program of exhibitions encompasses cutting-edge contemporary art, craft and design, historical survey exhibitions and the excitement of new-media practices. The program includes national travelling exhibitions and showcases South Australia’s own rich visual arts culture.
