The Art Gallery of Hamilton has some pretty big plans and it’s hoping for some help from the City of Hamilton.
The AGH want to raise 30-million dollars in the next two years for a major renovation project that would include an overhaul of Commonwealth Square Plaza, the Sculpture Garden and a two storey addition on the east side.
CEO Louise Dompierre told the city’s General Issues Committee she hopes to cover the costs through fundraising but, didn’t rule out asking council for help.
The city already gives the art gallery about a million dollars a year.
If all goes according to plan the renovations would be done in 2019.
