Rockhampton Museum of Art (RMOA) is where the region is inspired, engaged and enriched by art. The gallery is here for the regional community and its visitors through programs that encourage participation and appreciation of the visual arts by providing access to diverse practising artists and arts, and by always acknowledging the culture and heritage of their region. Fundamental to this is their engagement with First Nations at every level from the beginning.
Their permanent collection is one of national significance. It tracks Australia’s modernist movement, with artworks by prominent Australian artists, and continues to collect contemporary art by living artists. RMOA is where art is shared, bringing major touring exhibitions to the region, and showcasing the region’s own creativity to the world. The gallery seeks to celebrate their place and the people of Central Queensland, showcasing artists and artworks with a deep resonance to the region.
Open to all and alive with energy, this is where creativity and community comes together in a natural meeting place by the banks of Tunuba in Darumbal Country.
