The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts was founded in 1978 at the University of East Anglia when Lord and Lady Sainsbury gifted their collection of art dating from prehistory to the twentieth century. In May 2022, John Ellerman Foundation awarded £124,677 over three years to the Sainsbury’s Centre for Visual Arts, towards the costs of a new curatorial post – Curator of Art and Climate Sciences.
