The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, the University of Virgina, was established in 1997. It is one of few large collections outside of Australia available for public viewing. This is their mission statement:
The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia promotes learning about Australian Aboriginal art and culture through an integrated program of collection management, exhibition, education, research and publication. We are committed to building mutually beneficial partnerships with Aboriginal artists and communities to better represent their art and knowledge in each aspect of our program.
