Virtual Art Museum at the University of Toronto

The Art Museum is committed to the idea that art offers insight, and that it can inspire care, empathy and critical reflection especially amidst the kinds of challenges we are facing at present. In light of the necessary and temporary closure of our physical spaces, we introduce the Virtual Art Museum, a reshaping of our online offerings by highlighting works from the collection, behind-the-scenes stories, exhibitions that were closed early, or projects that came and went too fast. From video recordings of lectures, artist talks, and panel discussions, to our growing permanent collections comprised of over 7,000 objects—there’s lots to explore!


Please note that our physical spaces are temporarily closed.
