Faces: Works from the Permanent Collection

Walter C. Koerner Library, 1958 Main Mall

This collection presented at Walter C. Koerner Library represents some of the men and women who have been part of the history of The University of British Columbia between 1913 and 1966. Since the early 1980s, whether for fear of defacement or other concerns, these portraits left the departments from which they originated to be stored at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery. This exhibition is an opportunity to recognize UBC’s history and to find homes for these pictures on campus.
