The CCCA Canadian Art Database - UPDATE

The Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art has been the permanent home of the
CCCA Canadian Art Database since 2013. Created by Bill Kirby in 1997, it was one of the first online projects
focused on the documentation and dissemination of information about Canadian art and artists on the World Wide Web.

The project expanded substantially over the 25 years since it was established and the Jarislowsky Institute had been
planning to give it a long overdue upgrade. Unfortunately, we discovered that the age and complex customization
of the original database software, along with the need to find a replacement for Adobe Flash Player, which is
no longer supported, had made the envisioned upgrade impractical.

We will continue to make the Website available to the public in its present form and, as we investigate
alternative presentation solutions, we hope you will continue to enjoy and make use of the extensive content
housed in the CCCA Canadian Art Database.
