We host exhibitions and art shows across the Lakeshore Grounds. Our permanent galleries include the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre, and the Third Floor Gallery in the Student Welcome and Resource Centre at Humber College Lakeshore.
We have also hosted pop-up shows in the Tunnels and Cottages, and online. Use the images below to navigate and learn more.
Grace: One Story of Thousands
September 2023 - July 2024.
Grace: One Story of Thousands follows the life and experiences of Grace, one of the 1,511 people buried in the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital Cemetery at the corner of Horner and Evans Avenues in south Etobicoke. Through personal letters and surviving hospital records gathered by Grace’s great-niece, you are invited to pause and reflect on a life lived – not defined – by the institutional system in Ontario.
With a shift toward historical accuracy, personhood, and agency, the Interpretive Centre invites you to experience history through a new perspective.
Third Floor Gallery
Stay tuned for our new exhibition coming November 2023.

We feature solo and group art shows on the third floor of the Student Welcome and Resource Centre and also welcome contributions to our bi-annual exhibitions in the Interpretive Centre's main space in WEL104.
Themes must connect to one of our four guiding themes of Indigenous heritage, mental health history, educational heritage, or ecology, and/or highlight the local history of the Lakeshore Grounds region. Submissions are encouraged both from community members and students. We support artists of all experience levels.
