Important Notice to Our Patrons

Beginning February 21, the Legacy Gallery will undergo renovations to transform itself into the University of Victoria’s primary gallery space. Teaching and research spaces will be added to the space, which will continue to showcase the Michael C. Williams Collection, as well as other material from the university’s rich and diverse collections. The Legacy Gallery will become a lively and engaging centre for art that is easily accessible to the community and enables students to study both art and curatorial practice. It is anticipated that the Legacy will close for these renovations in late February and reopen in early June. We value your patronage and appreciate your patience while these changes are made. We look forward to welcoming you in June!

dove Williams Legacy Chair Dr. Carolyn Butler-Palmer and her students have chosen artworks from the University of Victoria Art Collections to brighten the walls of the Access Health Centre in downtown Victoria. The 24 pieces were put on permanent display in this centre "to strengthen the link between health, wellness and art."
