Funding to light up Latrobe gallery

Latrobe City Council has welcomed news of the Victorian Government’s $71,724 investment in LED lighting upgrades for Latrobe Regional Gallery. 

The funding is set to be provided through Creative Victoria’s Regional Collections Access Program to upgrade the gallery lighting system towards a more energy efficient and future proofed system. 

Council says 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, it said.

Reduced heating produced by the new system is also expected to improve the climate control system for further energy conservation. 

Mayor of Latrobe City, Kellie O’Callaghan thanked the Victorian Government for its 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,” she said.

“The upgrades will provide a much-needed energy efficient system that will improve the capacity of our gallery and the cultural vitality of our City. 

“I look forward to the system installation – improving the care of our current collection and more options for touring works that our community can enjoy,” said Mayor O’Callaghan.
