About the Hart House Permanent Collection
The Hart House Permanent Collection is a major collection of Canadian art developed by the Hart House Art Committee and administered by the Art Museum. Established in 1922, the Art Committee built the core of the original collection with representative artworks by members of the Group of Seven and their contemporaries. More recently, the Art Committee expanded its collecting strategy to include a greater diversity of media as well as works by artists of increasingly diverse cultural backgrounds. With its exclusive focus on supporting living Canadian artists through the purchase of their work, today the collection numbers over 700 works of art, including 59 artworks deemed “National Treasures.” Works from the Hart House Permanent Collection are on view throughout Hart House and are in constant demand for exhibitions at major museums around the world.
