SHELLEY PETERSON STUDENT ART EXHIBITION & AWARDS

The University of Toronto Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition & Awards showcases the artistic excellence of undergraduate students in the University’s tri-campus visual arts programs. The 2019 University of Toronto Shelley Peterson Art Exhibition (SPSAE) runs from April 17 - May 18, 2019 at the Art Museum at the University of Toronto.

The annual spring exhibition is curated by students in the Master of Museum Studies program at the Faculty of Information and supported by the staff and faculty of the Art Museum at the University of Toronto.

The Exhibition and Awards are made possible because of some key partnerships. Thank you to the Honourable David Peterson,Chancellor Emeritus, and Shelley Peterson for their continued patronage of this event and arts activities across the University. We also thank the U of T Pillar Sponsorship Program Affinity Partner, Manulife for their generous support of this event.

The notion of the Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition started over 10 years ago, when her husband the honourable David Peterson, then Chancellor of the University of Toronto, turned his office into an art gallery. He hosted an exhibition and reception for U of T visual arts students. Upon finishing his term as Chancellor, the University recognized the Peterson’s commitment to honouring student art and to ensure that vision established this annual event.
