Onsite [at] OCAD U 

Onsite [at] OCAD U, the university's professional gallery, features contemporary work by nationally and internationally significant artists and designers. It was established to promote, enhance and support the University's vision and mission, and reflect the widest expression of the University's activities. Like the University, the gallery is a public institution, and, as such, offers programs of interest to the public, the cultural community and the academic community. Onsite [at] OCADU features contemporary work by nationally and internationally significant artists and designers. Our mission is to draw from regional, national and international sources to create and host exhibitions, events and educational programs that inspire research as well as fresh ways of seeing and contextualizing contemporary design and art.
