Inspire the university community and support Canadian artists.

The UBC Okanagan Public Art Collection educates and inspires, engages and stimulates, and enriches the campus experience for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors.

With a focus on Canadian contemporary art and emerging local artists, the UBC Okanagan Public Art Collection holds one of the largest public collections in the region. It currently contains over 700 works of art, including paintings, prints, sculptures, drawings, carvings, digital art, and outdoor installations by Canadian and international artists. An ongoing rotation of selected pieces can be found on display in locations throughout the campus, such as in entrance halls, on walls, in vestibules, and outdoors across the campus grounds.

Your gift will help to build a diverse collection of challenging and evocative works of art that informs and increases knowledge, broaden viewers’ perspectives, and responds to local, national, and international developments in art.

FORWARD, the campaign for UBC, is advancing healthy lives, creating solutions for the planet, and shaping thriving societies. Donors and alumni are the catalyst making it happen.
