Gardiner Museum

Toronto, Canada

The Gardiner Museum celebrates the art of ceramics by connecting visitors to the fundamental role of ceramics in many cultures throughout history, and offers special temporary displays, many highlighting the relevancy of ceramics to contemporary life. The permanent collection comprises approximately 4,000 objects and focuses on specific areas that have been collected in depth. It also houses ceramics from the Ancient Americas, Chinese blue and white porcelain, Japanese porcelain, and contemporary Canadian ceramics.

The Gardiner engaged Bow Bridge to advise on strategies to raise the profile of the Museum in North America and internationally.
