TarraWarra Museum of Art is the first privately funded, significant public visual arts museum to be set up under the Australian Government’s philanthropic measures. TWMA operates as a not-for-profit institution, with a charter to display Australian art from the second half of the twentieth century to the present day. Eva and Marc Besen had long dreamt of sharing their inexhaustible passion for Australian art with the people of Australia and beyond; since opening in 2003, TWMA has presented seasonal themed collection based exhibitions along with temporary and travelling exhibitions focusing on Australian art.

Our Collection

TarraWarra Museum of Art (TWMA) was founded by Australian art collectors and philanthropists Eva Besen AO and Marc Besen AO. The collection includes Australian art from 1950 to the present day, featuring prominent artists who have shaped the development of modern art in Australia. The museum continues to tell the story of Australian art as the TWMA collection grows each year through new acquisitions and donations.
