Dr. Margaret (Marmie) Perkins Hess

In 2017, the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery received an exceptional bequest from the estate of the late Dr. Margaret (Marmie) Perkins Hess.

The gift includes an unparalleled collection of more than 1,000 works of art, including pieces from the Group of Seven and their contemporaries, as well as more than 400 works by Indigenous artists, primarily Inuit and Northwest Coast First Nations.
