The Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art was established c. 1977 as the "College Gallery" of the South Australian College of Advanced Education (SACAE) at its Underdale campus. Over the next 30 years it had several names and locations.[1]

Since October 2007 it has been the Samstag Museum of Art, located in the Hawke Building of the city west campus of the University of South Australia (UniSA). The museum is named in honour of Anne & Gordon Samstag, "two distinguished American benefactors to Australian culture, whose remarkable bequest provides opportunities for Australian artists to study overseas."[2]

The museum has hosted many notable exhibitions; details of exhibitions since 1991 can be found on the museum website.[3] Notable recent exhibitions have included:
