Statement from the McMichael on Racial Justice and Equality

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection adamantly condemns racism. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and support all those who stand against racial injustice. We recognize that we have more work to do and we will look to the voices of artists and the power of art to help us reflect and ask hard questions of ourselves.

AboutThe Gallery

Located on 100 acres of forested land along the Humber River, the McMichael is a major public gallery uniquely devoted to collecting the art of Canada.

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection is located on the original lands of the Ojibwe Anishinaabe People. It is uniquely situated along the Carrying Place Trail which historically provided an integral connection for Aboriginal people between Ontario’s Lakeshore and the Lake Simcoe-Georgian Bay Region. As an institution, McMichael recognizes the importance of acknowledging the original territories of the Ojibwe Anishinaabe First Nations people.

The McMichael’s permanent collection consists of over 6,500 artworks by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and First Nations, Métis, Inuit and contemporary artists who have contributed to the development of Canadian art.
