About the awards
Through the Graduating Student Art Awards, student artwork is purchased by the college for inclusion in Sheridan’s Art Lending Library, which allows members of the community to borrow and install the pieces across Sheridan’s three campuses. More than 300 submissions were received in 2020 and 2021. By participating in the awards, students hone their skills writing artist statements and interacting with art curators, while gaining access to valuable mentorship opportunities and learning about the art acquisition process.

Creative Campus Gallery
Located at the college’s Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga, Ont., the Creative Campus Gallery highlights past creative works and collections from Sheridan’s Faculties, departments, and research centres. The gallery was temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Browse past exhibitions.
