Art In the Workplace:

Art in the Workplace (AWP) is a not-for-profit organization that creates opportunities for local artists to showcase their talents to the community in an unconventional setting. AWP holds local art exhibitions and tours in the Atrium at McMaster Innovation Park – a world-class center for innovation and research, and a collaborative partner of our organization. AWP has three exhibitions a year, each lasting four months and featuring the work of over 100 local artists.

AWP is both a celebration of local culture and an enrichment of the work environment. Since its launch in 2009, artists, tenants and visitors have enjoyed the artwork on display and continue to gather three times a year for exhibition openings.

Some facts and figures:

  • Emerging and established local artists display their work side-by-side.
  • Artists do not pay commission or entry fees for their works.
  • Over $40,000 in sales has been put into the hands of local artists.
  • Artists reach new markets.

  • Each exhibition welcomes approximately 500 visitors, and around 20,000 people attend conferences at the Atrium annually.
  • Over 400 volunteers have participated on the AWP team.
