Visiting

Due to public health guidelines related to COVID-19, the Doris McCarthy Gallery is currently closed until further notice.

Our 2020 exhibitions, Three-Thirty and From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing have been extended, and will open again to the public once it is safe to gather again.

Though the gallery is closed, you can continue also see two public, outdoor installations at Pearson Collegiate and Malvern Public Library, presented as part of Three-Thirty. We are also offering virtual exhibitions and programming. Exhibition tours, artist spotlights and talks, lectures, and more (past and present) can be viewed on our multimedia archive, Digital DMG. And please follow us for social media content @dmg_utsc

We hope to see you again soon! If you have any questions, please email dmg.utsc@utoronto.ca.
