Permanent Collection

Our permanent art collection has been a labour of love since we first opened our doors.
From Drake’s inception, promoting and sharing art has been integral to our vision, and over the last few years we’ve had the pleasure of working directly with extraordinary artists to develop site-specific installations throughout all our venues. Expect to see works that range from spare conceptual installations to site-specific murals to kinetic sculptures.

The collection is grounded in contemporary Canadian art and augmented with select works by artists outside of Canada to create an international context for the collection.

Featured artists include:

Ken Lum + Laurie Simmons + 
Marcel Dzama + Jason Peters + Shary Boyle + Micah Lexier + 
Janet Werner + Bruce LaBruce +
