June 6, 2019

The University of Regina has received the Ken Lochhead art collection as a gift from the Lochhead family. URegina states that Lochhead joined the institution in 1950 and spent 14 years teaching students and creating works of art. “Thanks to the generosity of the Lochhead family, the University of Regina is now home to one of the largest collections of Lochhead’s work – with nearly 100 pieces in our collection,” said URegina President Vianne Timmons. “The gift also returns many pieces that Lochhead created right here in Regina in the 1950s and ’60s to his first artistic and academic home.” The 70 paintings are valued at about $716K and mark the family’s most significant gift to date.
