Sylvia Hahn (1911-2001) studied at the Ontario College of Art from 1929 to 1932, where she showed an early aptitude for painting, design, and metal works. Upon graduation, she was awarded the Governor-General Medal for academic achievement in the arts. Shortly after, Hahn was hired as a staff artist at the Royal Ontario Museum, eventually becoming head of the art department. She was a prolific artist, painting eleven murals for the museum, still extant today, and exhibiting numerous works with the Society of Canadian Painter-Etchers and Engravers, the Ontario Society of Artists, and the Toronto Metal Crafts Guild. Her works appear in many collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, Emmanuel College, Havergal College, and the ROM. Her liturgical commissions are displayed in at least fifteen churches throughout the country.
