We will be back … but not just yet!

Nickle Galleries and Museo are part of Libraries and Cultural Resources, and together we work as part of the University of Calgary COVID-19 strategy. Even as we are expanding our online programming, we are also preparing for our role within the overall campus re-entry plan.

Nickle at Noon returns starting September 10, 2020 online!
