As the spring weather gradually graces Trafalgar campus, the Gallery Garden is now open for faculty and staff use. A few years ago, this interior courtyard in A wing was renovated as an amenity for members of the Sheridan community. Previously, the space has also hosted special initiative projects such as the Illustration Embarrassment workshop. Special thanks to Sue Hutton and Marcie Matsubuchi for maintaining the space over time. Be on the lookout as they add more flora over the next week.
The Gallery Garden can be reserved in the Outlook booking system as Trafalgar – AGG – Gallery Garden.
