Regina Public Library has been collecting work of historical or cultural relevance to Saskatchewan people since 1948. There are over 450 artworks in RPL’s collection, which are held in public trust.
Dunlop Art Gallery assembles and manages the collection. Many of the works are on public display throughout RPL branches and can be accessed during regular business hours.
The RPL Permanent Collection is accessible online through a digital database.
Works are added to the library’s collections through purchases, donations, and gifts. RPL's Board of Directors approves new acquisitions, based on the recommendations of the Library Director and CEO, and the Director/Curator, Dunlop Art Gallery.
Images in the collections are reproduced for the purposes of research and study only. Every effort has been made to contact the copyright holders and gain permission for use on the database. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
The Art Rental Collection was initiated in 1967 as a Centennial project and officially launched as a public service in 1968. This service offers Regina Public Library customers the opportunity to rent original works of art by Canadian artists. Dunlop Art Gallery offers this service as part of its commitment to make art accessible, and to stimulate interest in the visual arts.
The Art Rental Collection contains paintings, photographs, drawings and prints produced by artists from across Canada. Many Saskatchewan and western Canadian artists are featured.
Art Rental is an affordable way to enjoy original artworks in your home or office.
