The National Gallery of Canada today announced a gift of $2 million from Fred and Elizabeth Fountain of Halifax, Nova Scotia, in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday. $500,000 is earmarked for the Gallery's National Outreach program. Through this program, the Gallery can better share the experience of great visual arts coast-to-coast-to-coast. The remainder of the funds from the gift will go to the Gallery's Art for the Nation 150 priority initiatives including over $1 million into the General Endowment at the National Gallery of Canada Foundation, providing enhanced support to the Gallery's art programming and its ambitious engagement as a pre-eminent art museum. In recognition of the Fountains' gift, the National Gallery of Canada will name the garden court, within the recently unveiled Canadian and Indigenous Galleries, the Jardin FRED & ELIZABETH FOUNTAIN Garden Court.
