Providing access to the visual arts

Founded in 1941 by prominent Canadian artists Pegi Nicol MacLeod and Lucy Jarvis, the UNB Art Centre was conceived as a link between the university and the wider community. For over 75 years the UNB Art Centre has provided access to the visual arts and delivered innovative learning opportunities to people of all ages.

Through the presentation of exhibitions, special programs and events, the UNB Permanent Collection, workshops, the UNB Art Centre promotes dialogue and stimulates thought and discussion, at times challenging traditional concepts of art and art-making practice. The UNB Art Centre is socially engaged and reflects contemporary values promoting inclusion and diversity in programming and hiring practice and celebrates the exchange of ideas and knowledge.

Taking a multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-disciplinary approach, the UNB Art Centre contributes to lifelong learning at UNB. Offering non-credit courses to adults and children, the UNB Art Centre engages members of the public in a creative and supportive learning environment while encouraging the development of technical skills, visual literacy, wellness and the exploration of new horizons.
