To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre is temporarily closed to the public, beginning Tuesday March 17, at 10am until further notice. Currently scheduled events and programs are cancelled and/or rescheduled for a later date.
Since we closed our doors to the public, we have been looking at how we can connect with you. We are looking for some new ways to bring you
into the Public Art Centre by taking a closer look at works from our collection and artists from our community with images, stories and videos.
As a non-profit arts organization, the Public Art Centre is grateful for your continued support. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and subscribe on YouTube. Join us for the Month of April while we celebrate the art work of the Secondary Students of St. Thomas and Elgin County.
The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre is an incorporated non-profit, charitable organization with the objective to encourage and promote an appreciation for, and support the practice of the visual arts in St. Thomas, Elgin County and surrounding area.
This has been accomplished in three predominate ways since the Art Centre's establishment in 1969: a permanent art collection that consists of over 1700 works, 16 exhibitions annually, that feature the work of local, regional, national and international artists, and ongoing educational programs for both adults and children.
We look forward to speaking to you. To learn more, call us today at 519-631-4040.
