The announcement for the investment in LED lighting upgrades at Latrobe Regional Gallery was made today and provided through Creative Victoria's Regional Collections Access Program.

Maintaining standards

The lighting upgrades will ensure the gallery can maintain international museum standards - showing works at the correct colour temperature and lux level. This will allow capacity for touring works and improve critical collection care.

Mayor of Latrobe City, Councillor Kellie O'Callaghan thanked the Victorian government for their support of the Latrobe Regional Gallery. "On behalf of council, I would like to thank the Victorian government for their investment in a new LED lighting system for the Latrobe Regional Gallery."
