Arts & culture
There are three highly visible art galleries on Concordia’s downtown Sir George Williams campus: the Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery showcases important work by established artists, while the FOFA and VAV galleries introduce the public to the exceptional works by the Concordia community. This fall, as part of its 50th anniversary, the Ellen Gallery will present an exhibition featuring works from the collection and addressing the reception of contemporary art.
We also have one of the most diverse collections of public art.
