Scope and Content
This project series documents the provisions made for the King Tutankhamun exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 1979. The office identified the project number as 7906.
This project consisted of custom cabinets made for the King Tutankhamun exhibit. From the materials in this fonds, it is not clear if additional provisions were made for the exhibit. Beginning in 1969, Parkin’s firm was hired as the head architects for the AGO’s massive expansion program that would span more than a decade. This is one project relating to the expansion of the art gallery. It should be noted that while AGO project contracts were originally given to John B. Parkin Associates, John C. Parkin continued the project under his new firm, Parkin Architects Planners, after parting ways with partner John B. Parkin in 1971.
The project is recorded through textual records and drawings dating from 1979. The textual records consist of progress billing invoices, while drawings for this project are of custom cabinets.
Materials in this project series have been kept in their original order.
