2021 has been a busy year for the Winnipeg Art Gallery, with the recent grand opening of Qaumajuq, the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art in the world. And, on April 27th, the Winnipeg Art Gallery will be joining The Winnipeg Foundation in celebrating The Foundation’s 100th anniversary with the launch of two new exhibitions: The Alloways’ Gift, and Rosalie Favell: Family Legacy.
BeCause Radio spoke with Dr. Stephen Borys, Director and CEO of the WAG, to learn more about Qaumajuq and the new exhibitions, and how their stories reflect on the past, while inspiring hopes for a better future for our city.
