Public reception: Thursday 11 September at 8:00 PM
In October 1953, a one-room area in the Arts and Administration Building was officially opened as the Dalhousie Art Gallery, a space administered by an art committee made up of faculty members working on a volunteer basis. The 1950s and 1960s were formative years for the Gallery when it went through a period of rapid growth. In 1970, the Gallery hired its first professional Director, and it has been led by paid professional staff ever since.
