Vancouver Art Gallery

The prestigious and inspiring Vancouver Art Gallery is in its 83rd year of bringing the best of the world to Vancouver. And Telrad has been their Partner for 21 of these years.

Vancouver Art Gallery installed their first Telrad System back in 1993 to replace their old Nortel PBX System. Since then they have grown to be one of Telrad’s top customers. The Vancouver Art Gallery called the Telrad Executive Expanded Display Digital Phones “A Work of Art” when they chose their new Digital 400 port System for the historical and venerable building.

The Vancouver Art Gallery Managing Director and Board of Directors were already familiar with Telrad technology with some directors already having Telrad in their businesses. Over 20 years have passed since then with the Telrad system still serving the Vancouver Art Gallery dependably well.

The Vancouver Art Gallery is the center of all that is happening in Downtown Vancouver, it is both the place to gather for public debate and the place to entertain and educate in matters of Art.

The Vancouver Art Gallery was founded in 1931 and in 1983 moved to the Hornby Street location, the former provincial courthouse. It was renovated at a cost of $20 million by architect Arthur Erickson, which completed his modern three city-block Robson Square complex. The Gallery has 41,400 square feet of exhibition space and more than 10,000 works in its collection, most notably its Emily Carr collection. It has also amassed a significant collection of photographs. In addition to exhibitions of its own, the Gallery regularly hosts touring exhibitions. The Gallery regularly features a variety of public programs and lectures. The Gallery also has a gift shop, café, and library.

We are presently working with the Art Gallery on expanding its operations with the addition of a Call Centre for their Campaigning Office- to raise funds for the new construction of the Art Gallery plus their ever growing and demanding Art Rentals and Sales.
