The Hamilton Gallery of Distinction was founded by Jack Pelech and Eunice Swanborough in 1984 to permanently recognize outstanding Hamilton residents, past and present, who have made the community a better place. To date, 227 people have been honoured.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary in 2009, a Gallery of Distinction wall was installed on the 3rd Floor of Central Library. The same year, a new award was also commissioned. Artist Kelley Lowe created the glass sculpture representing Cootes Paradise, Lake Ontario and the High-Level Bridge.
