Why Support The Nickle?

Declining government support, combined with limited funding from The University of Calgary dictates that The Nickle Arts Museum become proactive in gaining private support to sustain and develop the range of exhibitions, collections, research and teaching that sets it apart from any museum and art gallery in our community.

We need to gain more public support and appreciation for our unique role in the community, i.e. The Nickle exposes a broad range of students and members of the public to different perspectives of their work and life experience through art.

We truly value the support and interest from our friends both on campus and in the community, and cordially invite you to consider joining The Nickle as a Member, Friend or Associate.
