McMichael Canadian Art Collection

Mcmichael Art CollectionCanadian art and stories – through a distinctly Canadian art experience.

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection offers its visitors a unique and truly Canadian experience. From the art within the gallery on its walls to the surrounding landscape, the McMichael is the perfect gallery for an introduction to Canada’s art, its peoples, their cultures and their history.

Renowned for its devotion to collecting only Canadian art, the McMichael permanent collection consists of almost 6,000 artworks by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and First Nations, Inuit and other artists who have made a contribution to Canada’s artistic heritage.

Intriguing. Inviting. Inspiring.

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection is a major public art gallery devoted solely to collecting Canadian art. The gallery offers visitors the unique opportunity to enjoy Canadian landscape paintings in the woodland setting that inspired them. Plus the McMichael brings internationally acclaimed touring exhibitions to its audience, providing a broader context for the collection and also reflecting today’s audience’s higher demand and interest in art. The McMichael’s goal is to bring visitors diverse, creative, high-quality, thought-provoking exhibitions, in order to continually keep its audience engaged and interested.

Built of fieldstone and hand-hewn logs, the McMichael houses thirteen exhibition galleries and is situated amid 100 acres of serene conservation land. Floor-to-ceiling windows enable visitors to enjoy marvellous views of the densely wooded Humber River Valley.

Through a network of outdoor paths and hiking trails, visitors can discover outdoor sculptures and wander the McMichael Cemetery where six Group of Seven members and gallery co-founders Robert and Signe McMichael have been laid to rest.

See. Do. Discover.

The McMichael displays a wide range of exhibitions each year, and offers a stimulating array of programs and events for people of all ages. They include curators’ lectures, tours, music performances, kids’ camps, workshops, school programs and hands-on art activities.
