University Art Collections

The University of Manitoba boasts an art collection numbering over 1500 items including large and small-scale paintings, drawings, ceramics, wall hangings, stone sculptures, prints, portrait busts, outdoor artworks, murals and much more.  Many of these works were gifted to the University by generous donors; others were commissioned to commemorate persons or events that have played an important role in the life of the university. Most of them are currently held by the university’s faculties, departments, colleges and administrative units where you will find them enlivening classrooms, reception areas, offices, libraries and hallways as well as the university’s grounds.
