REMIX Reading Club: Faye Heavyshield

Meet at Guest Services

Do you love to read, think and chat, but don’t have time to do all of that? We’re shaking up the AGA Reading Club with our new partner, the Edmonton Public Library, and brand new ways for you to engage with current exhibitions through the medium of your choice. Read a book, check out an article, listen to a podcast, or browse a social media feed. Bring it all together at the AGA, where we’ll tour an exhibition and discuss common themes.

On November 8th we invite you to join us in thinking about themes presented by the exhibition Faye HeavyShield (Calling Stones): Conversations.

A cash bar with special deals on wine will be available to get the conversation flowing.
