Recurs: Every day, until 18th Aug 2019

In 1929, building began on the Armidale Teachers’ College (ATC). That same year, Howard Hinton made his first donation of artwork to the College, an initial step in creating one of the most significant art collections in regional Australia. Ninety years later, the history and architecture makes the Old Teachers’ College one of the most distinctive institutions of Armidale, contributing to a legacy of education and culture in the region.

The College on the Hill will include photographs and memorabilia from the University of New England archives and will be on display close to the permanent exhibition HINTON: Treasures of Australian art.

The exhibition has been produced by the New England Regional Art Museum in partnership with the University of New England, co-curated by Bill Oates, UNE's University Archivist, and the Friends of the Teachers' College.

The College on the Hill will be on display from Friday 21 June – Sunday 18 August 2019 (excluding Monday).

Please note: NERAM is closed each Monday.
