The RiverBrink Art Museum is a fine-art museum featuring changing exhibitions from the renowned art collection of Samuel E. Weir, as well as outstanding works on loan from contemporary artists and Canadian and international collections. Current exhibitions will feature Indigenous beadwork by Samuel Thomas and oil portraits by Mark Crofton Bell. There is also a library and gift shop onsite.
RiverBrink houses approximately 1,400 works of art – including paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures. Exhibitions, installed year-round, come from the collection of Samuel E. Weir, and from public and private loans. This building was, in fact, his homestead, purchased in 1943. An art library, decorative arts and impressive views of the Niagara River enhance the visitor experience. Visitors can enjoy three floors of exhibition space, a gift shop and the library's priceless collection of books on art, history and local and regional geography.
