Glenbow is a place of confluence. A meeting point for people and communities to join a flow of ideas, knowledge, opinions and experiences. Our exceptional collection of art and historical objects represents the people and ideas that have shaped our region. That collection is complemented and contextualized by travelling exhibitions that explore historical and contemporary art, fashion, design and innovation from around the world.
We’re embarking on a renovation that will transform our building into the JR Shaw Centre for Arts & Culture, a cultural landmark offering unparalleled access to Glenbow’s diverse collection of art and objects and exhibitions from around the world.
We asked our community about its hopes for Glenbow’s future. Your feedback helped us set our campaign target at $175 million. This ambitious goal will provide the resources required to catalyze vibrancy in our downtown core while improving the way we connect with arts and culture. Forever.
Your support today means a brighter tomorrow – for Calgary, for Canada and beyond. Together we can rebuild our museum as a source of inspiration and innovation for the whole community.
Glenbow at the JR Shaw Centre for Arts & Culture – a place for everyone, a community hub, and a museum dedicated to the future of art and culture in Canada.
