WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT? IT’S THE NEW LEGACY ART GALLERY AND CAFÉ, made possible by the bequest of an extensive personal art collection and property holdings from the estate of Michael Williams. The gallery is run by UVic and Heritage Properties, the firm that manages much of the property from the estate.
What’s it show? The opening exhibit features the works of many of the Old Town artists who were encouraged and supported by Williams, starting in the ’70s when he became involved in heritage restoration and developed a taste for fine contemporary art.
Where is it located? Right in downtown Victoria, at the corner of Yates and Broad.
When is it open? Check it out any time between 10 in the morning and 5:30 at night, Wednesday through Sunday. The space is available for private functions.
What’s the admission? Free.
What’s on the menu? Have yourself a panini or other such fare. There’s a small gift shop, too.
