Benefaction is central to the creation of museum collections around the world and has been crucial in the development of the NGV Collection since 1861.

What inspires people to collect works of art and then gift them to a museum? Why is it important to support museums in this way and what is the significance of these gifts to public collections and the community?

Explore, in a conversation with David and Anita Angel, NGV Donors Michael Moon, Mark Young and Dr Margaret Bullen, academic Dr Christopher Marshall and NGV Curator, Judith Ryan.
