We are delighted to be able to share this magnificent collection of Canadian art, making it accessible to diverse audiences across the country. As much of the art included in Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art is on loan from the Crombie Collection, tours of Crombie House will not be available.  We hope that you will have the opportunity to view the Exhibition at one of the galleries mentioned above as it makes its way across Canada.

"The McMichael is a treasure. The new exhibit featuring the Sobey’s collection is so good and so extensive I will need to return soon."

"An amazing exhibit is on now Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art. It’s amazing, trust me, there is something for everyone.
