Thank you for your interest in the Legacy Art Gallery school tours. This year all of our tours were booked very fast. There are still several options to visit:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a waitlist. Cancellations do occur as tour dates approach.
- Schedule a self-guided tour. The Legacy Art Gallery is free and open to the public. The exhibition The Time of Things will run from April 11 to July 7, 2018. You are more than welcome to bring your class and do a self-guided tour if you let us know what day and time you would like to come. We will offer some basic resources for you to use ahead of time and a short introduction when you arrive.
- Stay tuned for future fall and/or winter school tours!
We acknowledge with respect the Lkwungen-speaking peoples on whose traditional territory the university stands and the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
