Please join Sustainable Building Manitoba on Wednesday May 1st at 5:00 p.m. for a short Annual General Meeting followed by a tour that will give you a behind the scenes look at the new Inuit Art Centre. For more information, please visit their website here.
Our AGM is a great way to connect with colleagues in the sustainable building field and discuss some of the great ideas we've been talking about at our lunch and learns this year.
The highlight of the night is the Inuit Art Centre, which broke ground for construction in the spring of 2018. With a direct line of site to the project, we will be treated to a visual overview of the construction in progress on the Inuit Art Centre by Rick Chopp, the WAG Project Manager. A member of the PCL team will also be on hand to answer questions.
The Inuit Art Centre
To celebrate Inuit art, the people who make it, and the lands from which they come, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is building the Inuit Art Centre, the first of its kind in the world. The Centre will be the first of its kind; a 40,000-square-foot cultural landmark - connected to the WAG by bridges on all levels - that is home to the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art on earth. Here, over 13,000 pieces of contemporary and traditional artworks will be displayed as a complete collection for the first time ever. Plans for the building include a three-story transparent vault, an interactive theatre, a comprehensive Inuit gallery and studio & learning space.
