Abstract
This thesis critically examines the influence exerted by both the federal government and corporate sponsors on arts institutions in Canada. Focusing on the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, Ontario, the author outlines the historical influence of federal funding. The role that corporate sponsorship has come to play in offsetting a lack of financial support from the Government of Canada is also critically examined within the scope of this thesis. The author argues that gallery administration attempts to mimic the language used in the Government of Canada’s federal policy for museums in order to appeal for more substantial federal support. At the same time, the author also contends that gallery management also utilizes the language of corporate mission and vision statements in order to appeal to alternate sources of funding, such as corporate sponsors.
