Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,
The Art Gallery of Hamilton, an institution in this city, finds itself closed like many other cultural centres around the city. Although there doors may be closed, the AGH is working hard to deliver engaging exhibitions and collections for you to enjoy from the comfort of your living room with AGH at Home.

From the Art Gallery of Hamilton:
The AGH is working hard to ensure that our community has a supportive outlet to bring the positive nature of art and culture to their lives in these uncertain and challenging times when it is needed the most. The team at the AGH is developing creative ways for our members to continue enjoying art and culture, as well as supporting artists through online platforms like our newly launched AGH at Home web page.
