News – The MCA wins two IMAGinE Awards

Posted on Nov. 26, 2012 in News.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) was the recipient of two 2012 IMAGinE Awards presented by Michael Rolfe, CEO of Museums & Galleries New South Wales on Friday 23 November 2012 at White Rabbit Gallery.

MCA Director Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE won the Individual Achievement Award in recognition of her contribution to the arts and in particular her role as director of the MCA and increasing access to contemporary art.

The Bella Room received the Education & Audience Development Award for engaging and inspiring people with specific needs to explore contemporary art through sensory experience.

MCA Director Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE said: “I am especially delighted to have been recognised by my colleagues in this way and thank Museums and Galleries NSW for their support.”

Established in 2008, the IMAGinE Awards celebrate the achievements and extraordinary diversity of the NSW museum and gallery sector and those who work within it, both paid and volunteer. An initiative of Museums & Galleries NSW, they have been developed in collaboration with the Local Government Association of NSW and Shires Association of NSW, Regional & Public Galleries NSW and Museums Australia NSW.

The IMAGinE awards are made possible by the support of the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. The IMAGinE awards are administered by Museums & Galleries NSW which is assisted by the NSW Government through Arts NSW.
