Grand Opening of the Art Gallery of Alberta

Happy New Year, everyone! As a resident of Edmonton, Alberta, I've been anxiously awaiting the opening of the new Art Gallery of Alberta for some time now. For the past several years, construction has been underway on the new gallery, which will house the AGA's collection of more than 7,000 artworks. The new building is located in Sir Winston Churchill Square in the heart of Edmonton’s Arts District, and has twice the gallery and educational space of the former gallery.


The new gallery (pictured above) opens to the public on January 31, 2010. A limited quantity of free tickets to the Grand Opening celebrations will be available on the AGA website beginning Monday, January 18, 2010 at noon. AGA Members will receive advanced access to the tickets starting today at noon.
