The National Gallery of Canada is establishing the Canadian Photography Institute, a world-class, multidisciplinary research centre dedicated to the history, evolution and future of photography. The creation of the Institute is a historic first for the Gallery, the launch of a centre of national and global importance. It also signals the triumph of a creative partnership of Scotiabank, David Thomson, the National Gallery of Canada and the National Gallery of Canada Foundation.
For over 130 years, the National Gallery of Canada has been the nation’s pre-eminent showcase of artistic achievement, presenting Canada’s artists to the world and bringing the world’s greatest artists to Canadians.
With a mission to provide this spectacular museum with private financial support, the National Gallery of Canada Foundation promises creative, forward-thinking philanthropy to help offer the best in visual arts.
There are many opportunities to give to the National Gallery of Canada Foundation. Patrons can help the Gallery acquire great works of art, present exciting exhibitions and educational programs, restore masterpieces and conduct vital research. Donate now with Canadahelps.org.
