Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation is proud to collaborate with the University of New Brunswick in the restoration of seven stained glass windows that dominate the auditorium of Memorial Hall. One of five designated heritage building at UNB, Memorial Hall is home to UNB Art Centre, and theatre program, hosting events that attract 8,000 to 10,000 people annually.
Peter Coates, Director of Development and Donor Relations notes that the windows are both works of art in their own right and an important part of the built heritage of New Brunswick. The restoration of these windows by local artist and restoration expert Ned Bowes will return them to their former brilliance and ensure their future longevity for the people of this province
SHMF salutes UNB for its work in respecting and preserving cultural and historic objects d’art.
