Ararat Regional Art Gallery (ARAG) is closed in 2017 for a major $6.235 million redevelopment. The gallery will reopen in 2018 in a new and upgraded home at the Ararat Town Hall in time to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Ararat Regional Art Gallery will present a regular exhibition program from the Ararat Library, but also has prominent events planned in unexpected locations in the region. The project has been funded through a partnership between the Victorian Government ($3.7 million), the Federal Government ($945,000) and Ararat Rural City Council.
