The next phase for the new Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) is set to commence in March 2019 with Kane Constructions recently awarded the construction contract. Greater Shepparton Mayor, Cr Kim O’Keeffe, extended Council’s gratitude to the Federal Government and SAM Foundation for understanding the economic and social value of the new SAM project and went on to say, “The build is going to be world class and a must-see destination, attracting tourism and visitation to Greater Shepparton. I can’t wait to see the transformation of the location take place.”
