The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional land of diverse Indigenous Peoples including the Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Beaver Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Anishinaabe/Saulteaux/Ojibwe and Dene Peoples. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous, Inuit and Métis people who make Alberta their home today.

Free Admission | Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day

Sponsored by

August 23 is Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day. This day commemorates the signing of Treaty No. 6 between the Plains, Wood Cree, Nakota, Saulteaux and Dene people and the Crown at Fort Carlton on August 23, 1876. 

August 23 this year falls on a Tuesday where the AGA is closed to the public. However, to celebrate Treaty 6 Recognition Day, we are offering free admission on Wednesday, August 24—when the Gallery is open—and invite the public to reflect on our truth and history as part of our commitment toward reconciliation. 

All our exhibitions, shopAGA and our restaurant May will be open. Learn more about our exhibitions here

Thank you to Capital Power’s generous support for making free admission possible.
