Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts Fund
The Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts (TFVA) is a not-for-profit organization of 240 members established in 1998. It supports the visual arts in the GTA financially through annual awards and educates its members through regular lectures and museum, gallery, studio and collector tours and events.
The McMichael is very grateful to the TFVA for the establishment of a Fund for symposia, speaker series, and other public events that support the engagement of the public in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in the appreciation and understanding of Canadian art. The Fund assists the McMichael to bring new perspectives from scholars, art experts, and others across North America. It has, for example, supported Modernism in Manhattan: David Milne’s New York 1903-1916, by Jessica Todd Smith, the Susan Gray Detweiler Curator of American Art and Manager of the Center for American Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It has also supported bringing journalist Ruth Teichroeb to participate in a conversation with artist Robert Houle about the devastating impact of the residential school system.
