Thanks to Canadian Western Bank, all donations made to the AGA between November 28 and December 31, 2017 will be matched (up to $10,000), dollar for dollar! CWB is a long-time collaborator of the AGA, and the presenting sponsor of Art on the Block, and we are extremely grateful to have their continued support.
Did you know that the Art Gallery of Alberta, founded in 1924, is both the oldest cultural institution in Alberta and is a non-governmental charitable organization? We are also the only museum exclusively dedicated to the presentation and preservation of visual arts in Alberta and have a collection of over 6,000 works of art in our permanent Collection!
As part of this year’s Annual Giving Campaign, we want to share some of the stories from the Collection. As such, we have asked some of our friends from across Alberta to tell us about their favourite artist or artwork from the Collection. They have some great things to say! We are also inviting YOU to make a donation to the campaign and get some fantastic swag as our way of saying THANK YOU for making what we do possible.
