Canadian Art closes
 
 
Canadian Art is closing up shop after 37 years of publishing due to its financial position and revenue loss resulting directly from the COVID pandemic. The board of directors announced the immediate closure on its website in early October.
            “After thoroughly exhausting all options to allow Canadian Art to survive, the Board began the process of pursuing a wind-up that would best maintain the organization’s charitable status, protect the stewardship of its cultural assets for the future, and maximize recoveries to stakeholders such as employees, landlords, trade creditors,” said the announcement.
            The title had been operating at reduced capacity for the past seven months. It had put a hold on both the summer issue and updating its website to try and get a handle on its finances.
            To preserve the archives of Canadian Art, one copy of each CA magazine published will be donated to the Art Gallery of Ontario with the aim to eventually provide digital public access for future generations.
