Hart House Permanent Collection

The Hart House Permanent Collection is a major public collection of Canadian art selected by the Hart House Art Committee and administered by the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery. Established in 1922 with the purchase of A.Y. Jackson's Georgian Bay, November, the Art Committee built the core of the original collection with representative artworks by members of the Group of Seven and their contemporaries, including Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, Charles Comfort, David Milne, and Carl Schaefer, as well as works by the Automatistes and Painters Eleven.

In 2005, the Art Committee expanded its collecting strategy to include more diverse media, including language-based works, photography, film, video, and installation, as well as works by artists of more diverse cultural backgrounds. Today, the collection numbers over 650 works of art, including 59 artworks now deemed “National Treasures.” The Hart House Permanent Collection is on view throughout Hart House and is in constant demand for exhibitions at major museums throughout the world.
