What we do
The University of Victoria Art Collections consists of some 27,000 art objects which support the teaching and research programs of the University.
Since the founding of the collection in 1953 a number of named collections have provided the thematic direction of the acquisition program. The two founding collection were the the University of Victoria Collection and the John and Katharine Maltwood Collection. A third collection, the Michael C. Williams Collection, was recently received by way of bequest. It underpins the exhibitions at our downtown Victoria Legacy Gallery.
University of Victoria Art Collections assists the academic and cultural development of the University community by preserving collections for the pursuit and communication of knowledge.
