The Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA) is very pleased to announce that Capital Power will continue its support of The National Gallery of Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta program through the Capital Powered Art initiative for the next three (3) years until 2015.
The AGA and Capital Power entered into this unique partnership agreement in December 2009. Capital Powered Art provides financial support in making world-class art from the National Gallery of Canada available to Albertans. The long-term commitment is a rare gesture in the Canadian art world, establishing a stable environment for the AGA to plan for the future.
As an enhancement to the Capital Powered Art program, Capital Power and the AGA are introducing a new initiative entitled the Capital Powered Art Acquisition Program. This new program provides the opportunity for art lovers, enthusiasts and visitors to help the AGA build its own permanent collection. Each year, people will be able to donate funds for AGA art acquisition. Capital Power will match funds raised with a donation of up to $25,000 for the purchase of works of art by living Alberta and Canadian artists.
