The McIntosh Gallery is a public art gallery which serves the university and surrounding community. Built in 1942 with a bequest from the Estate of Wilhelmina Morris McIntosh, it presents a continuous program of contemporary and historical exhibitions which explore themes and issues of our time. Artworks from the Collection are also on view throughout the campus.
Description of programs:
All McIntosh Gallery school programs are designed to help students:
1) develop an appreciation for and understanding of creativity in the visual arts;
2) improve the ability to communicate with other people about visual images;
3) apply knowledge to analyze and describe artworks by their elements of
design and the ideas and emotions conveyed;
4) sharpen their powers of observation and ability to contribute reasoned
opinions to a discussion about artworks.
Where possible, the study of artworks will be linked with other arts disciplines and subject areas e.g. Canadian history or multicultural studies.
