Dates of existence
The University of Toronto Art Centre opened to the public in November of 1996. It was created by a collective effort of many University of Toronto staff and volunteers. An initial gift from the Delta Gamma Women's Fraternity made the conversion of the 1961 north wing of University College possible. The purpose of the Art Centre was to provide a home for three permanent collections of art belonging to the University: the Lillian Malcove Collection (which came to us by bequest in 1981), the University College Collection (Canadian art), and the large and eclectic University of Toronto Art Collection.
In 2014, UTAC was federated with the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery (Hart House) to form the Art Museum at the University of Toronto.
