Art Gallery of Alberta

Celebrating Dentons Canada Day


We had an incredible Canada Day at the AGA on July 1, 2016. The weather was gorgeous and downtown Edmonton was teeming with people excited to explore the Art Gallery of Alberta inside and out, and take advantage of the free admission all day long. In total, we saw 6514 people walk through our doors to explore AGA exhibitions. AWith 6 different exhibitions on view, the AGA provided visitors with the opportunity to see historical and contemporary works by local, Canadian and international artists. Kids also had the opportunity to create a variety of art projects, including Canada Day hats, layered portraits and abstract maps.

Many thanks to Dentons for making it possible for the AGA to offer free gallery admission for the fifth straight year of Canada Day celebrations. We are so appreciative that Dentons supports local organizations and recognizes the importance of making art accessible to the entire community. This is especially valuable on Canada Day, when the country comes together as one.

We hope all our visitors had a fantastic Dentons Canada Day at the AGA.
