On Thursday, 28 November 2013, the Art Canada Institute will launch The Canadian Online Art Book Project, in conjunction with the release of Jack Chambers: Life & Work, the first title in a series of 50 free online art books. 

2012 Trudeau Scholar Sara Angel is the Founding Executive Director & Publisher of the Art Canada Institute, a non-profit research organization based at Massey College, University of Toronto, whose mandate is to promote the study of an inclusive multi-vocal Canadian art history to as broad an audience as possible, in both English and French, within Canada and internationally. 

The ACI wants to make available clear and reliable information on the lives and work of Canadian artists creating original content that will be available through digital media as well as more traditional means such as books, public lectures, symposia, workshops, and documentaries. 

With The Canadian Online Art Book Project, the Art Canada Institute will release 6 to 12 digital art books per year on the lives and work of iconic Canadian artists, as well as on key people, themes, and topics in Canadian visual culture. By functioning as an online art museum, a digital library, an interactive Canadian art encyclopedia, and a visual arts directory, the ACI will become an indispensable resource on the country’s visual heritage.
