Call for Nominations

Friends and supporters of the Hamilton Gallery of Distinction,

Since 1984 the Hamilton Gallery of Distinction has recognized outstanding Hamilton citizens, who have made significant contributions to the betterment of our community.

With an eye to the future of the Gallery, the Board of Directors has decided to refrain from holding the annual Gallery of Distinction nominations process and hosting the induction dinner until further notice.

All nominations currently submitted are valid for the next round.

We are using this as an opportunity to consider the role of the Gallery in our community, its meaning and impact, and how to evolve the Gallery to meaningfully recognize exceptional Hamiltonians. We will communicate widely when the nominations re-open, as well as details about the exciting next chapter of the Gallery.

The list of inductees is on the Gallery of Distinction at and a dedicated digital screen and list is on the 3rd Floor of the Central Library.

We welcome input from those who have participated in the Gallery in the past and members of the community. If you would like to be involved in discussions about the future of the Gallery, please contact the Senior Leadership Support Manager at
