Bond University is home to Australia’s largest private collection of Indigenous Art on public display, thanks to the generosity of Dr Patrick Corrigan (AM).

Dr Corrigan almost single-handedly created the Bond University Indigenous and non-Indigenous Art Collection through personal donations, locations and procurement. The University is extremely grateful for his generosity.

As an avid collector, Dr Corrigan’s motivation for these works is that they be shared. Whilst many collectors prefer to house artworks in their homes, or even a storage facility, Dr Corrigan is adamant that his selected pieces provide enjoyment for a wide audience.

The Corrigan Walk was created to provide a tour of the Indigenous Art held in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine. The Corrigan Walk tour is guided by a Bond staff member or student, and takes approximately one hour. During the tour, guests learn the history of Indigenous Art, interesting facts about the artists, as well as the stories behind the paintings.

Public tours are held once a semester; with staff, students and the general public welcome to attend.
