SASA HISTORY PROJECT

THROUGH THE LENS OF TIME: 15O YEARS @ THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL OF ART

Given the support that the Members of the Friends of the South Australian School of Art have provided over the years since its writing was first initiated, the Board of FSASA have determined that members should share in its ongoing development.

Over the next several months therefore, Draft versions of the five chapters of the eight planned that have been completed will be posted to this site for member feedback.

Each of these Draft Chapters will be Encrypted to provide Copyright Protection for the author of the History, Dr Jenny Aland.

about the south Australian school of art chapter

The South Australian School of Art began in 2008 with the formation of the SASA History Steering Committee with Dr Pamela Zeplin as Chair. 

The original aims of the Project were to develop the history in two parts: 

1. Development of a bibliography of archival material relating to the 150 + year history of the School

2. Publication of a volume that specifically examines a key decade in the School's history when it was located in Stanley Street, North Adelaide, during the 1960s and 1970s. This was a particularly vibrant and influential period for the School.
