Algonquin Art Centre: A New Vision of Art in Algonquin Park

“The Jack Pine” by Tom Thomson

Algonquin Park is well known for its outdoor recreation and its research initiatives, but few realize how important the Park has been for the Canadian arts. Its beautiful landscapes have inspired some of the nation’s most famous paintings, such as Tom Thomson’s “The Jack Pine” or A.Y. Jackson’s “Red Maple”, and the Park continues to attract painters, writers, filmmakers, and performance artists who travel to Algonquin to experience its inspiring qualities for themselves.

The Algonquin Art Centre was established to celebrate this tradition and to foster a new vision for art in Algonquin Park. This vision includes new initiatives in visual, literary, performance, and media arts, artist-in-residence programs, and developing wilderness-related art projects.
