A generous donation from the private collection of the late York University honorary degree recipient Barbara Turnbull (LLD Hon ’12) will decorate the Kaneff Tower with a new depth of colour and meaning. The gift of 16 original oil-on-canvas paintings from Turnbull’s private collection of art were gifted to her by artist and York University Chancellor Emeritus R. Roy McMurtry.
York University announced last week a $2.5-million gift received from the Mirkopoulos family of Cinespace Studios in support of the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design. The donation will go towards the creation of the York University AMPD Motion Media Studio, to be established at Cinespace Film Studios’s Kipling Avenue location.
A shining example of York University’s leadership in partnering with international communities to build a better world and advance its global impact was celebrated April 25 with the official opening of the Lillian Meighen Wright Centre (LMWC), the landmark building of York’s EcoCampus in Costa Rica.
