The Ronald & Nancy Kalifer Culture Hub provides a dedicated, curated and welcoming space to display Baycrest’s stunning and extensive art collection, host external exhibitions, and offer programming for Baycrest’s clients.

The Culture Hub is located on the ground floor of the Apotex building, across from the WA café. In this art gallery-like atmosphere, the space will be transformed with rotating, curated exhibitions throughout the year. It is an area meant to engage the Baycrest community in conversations, stimulate interest and spark dialogue.

Included in the Culture Hub is a warm, inviting and accessible seating area where residents, their families & companions can gather, laugh, muse and dream while feeling inspired and surrounded by pieces from Baycrest’s renowned art collection.

Current Exhibition

Baycrest is thrilled to host this collaboration exhibition of photographs and contemporary artwork.  The WOMEN+ exhibition draws from the extensive collection of the Ontario Jewish Archives and curated contemporary artwork intended to honour and celebrate Jewish women in the arts, throughout history and today.  

This vivid display of extraordinary talent illustrates the diversity not only of mediums of artistic expression such as painting, sculpture, photography, works on paper and jewelry, but also reflects the unique perspectives of Jewish women artists.   Themes uncovered in this exhibition range from Jewish traditions, religious and celebrations, to reflecting on motherhood and documenting the memory of time spent with family and loved ones, abstract compositions and materials influenced from travel, and more.

Featuring Contemporary Artists Rosalie Sharp, Pedie Wolfond, Gina Godfrey, Ina Gilbert, Samantha Goldman, Rachael Grad, Rochelle Rubinstein, Melanie Siegel, and Kim Smiley.

The exhibition is now on view at The Ronald and Nancy Kalifer Culture Hub at Baycrest until fall 2023.
