The art of giving
MAMA Art Foundation (formerly Albury Regional Art Foundation) is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1989 to support Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) in the acquisition of art and maintenance of the collection.
MAMA Art Foundation's objective is to enhance the ownership of the art and photographic collections and to participate in the education and understanding of the arts in the region. Income from the Foundation's capital fund goes towards acquisitions and the conservation of major works of art, major exhibitions, publications and research projects and equipment for MAMA.
A significant portion of the MAMA collection has been funded or attracted by the MAMA Art Foundation, with full or partial acquisition of over 150 works.
