The exhibition title Longevity embodies the spirit of collecting with specific reference to the intentions behind collection activities: acquisition, documentation, display, preservation, and conservation. Artworks in the City of Ottawa Art Collection serve as meaningful records that help to define the cultural landscape of our region and are preserved for the enrichment of future generations. They act as reference points for specific events, quotidian contemplations and intangible notions of the past, present and of what is yet to come.

This exhibition highlights 71 additions to the City of Ottawa Art Collection in 2017. Artworks are added to the Collection each year by way of a peer assessment process through purchase, donation and/or commission. This year, 60 artworks by 41 artists were purchased, six artworks were donated and five site-specific permanent public art commissions were completed.
