Work continues to bring Rodman Hall back into community hands as Brock University looks to reduce its financial obligation for the art museum.

Rodman Hall Art Centre Inc. is a community-based not-for-profit corporation whose first order of business is to develop a phased transition plan with Brock University to return the public art gallery back to the public.
