McMaster University Fitzhenry Art Studios
MCMASTER UNIVERSITY FITZHENRY ART STUDIO
Built in the 1960s, Togo Salmon Hall in home of McMaster’s Faculty of Fine Arts. A remarkable facility with one of the only foundry spaces in Canada. Unfortunately, the hall was built for a much smaller school as the original studio has a maximum capacity of 15 students.
A significant donation was given to the Fine Art Department by D.Robert Fitzhenry in honour of his late wife Andree. Fitzhenry’s generosity gave the school the necessary funds to expand the studios and add an atrium to Togo Salmon Hall. The entirety of this project was a 1,700 square foot addition over the former courtyard and exhibit vicinity.
