About the School of Art's 100th AnniversaryBack to top

The School of Art's 100th Anniversary Celebrations kicked off in fall 2013 with the Canada Council's announcement that the School of Art Gallery was the recipient of the Canada Council's York Wilson Wilson Endowment Award of $30,000 to purchase Robert Houle’s Sandy Bay Residential School Series in its entirety.

On Saturday, April 26 the School will host a celebratory reception for the exhibition On Principle: 100 Years of Creative Direction of the School of Art in the School of Art Gallery, followed by the symposium Indigenizing the Campus through Art: Past and Future Perspectives, and a Gala Fundraising Dinner in the evening.
