The Counihan Gallery In Brunswick administers the Merri-bek Art Collection.
Including over 300 artworks, the collection is growing steadily through the implementation of the Art Acquisition and Development Policy.
The collection has developed through purchases, donations and commissions with artworks subsequently displayed in Council building foyers and meeting rooms, libraries and in specially curated exhibitions at the Counihan Gallery In Brunswick.
The collection aims to enhance the awareness, understanding, and appreciation of art. It also aims to generate discussion about art, culture, social and environmental issues.
