The Department of Art History & Visual Studies (formerly History in Art) is pleased to announce a wonderful opportunity for graduate students interested in working on a research project relating to modern and contemporary art in the Pacific North West.

The award has been established through the generosity of Bill Langlois and Mike Melnyk, who wish to support and encourage the preservation of art created by local BC artists for the future enjoyment of British Columbia. It is named in memory of Mr. Melnyk’s late mother, Margaret Russell. (Read more on the UVic website.)
