Take a behind-the-scenes look at the Art Gallery of Alberta’s curatorial process
On this episode, our correspondent, Aubrianna Snow, takes us on a journey through the Art Gallery of Alberta‘s curatorial process, and how they create art collections and experiences that are accessible to all. We also learn about the vital role endowment funds play in helping the gallery continue its work for generations to come.
The original Art Gallery of Alberta Fund was established in December of 1989 by the Poole family – one of the first funds established during ECF’s inaugural year. This fund alone has provided grants more than $2,000,000 to the Art Gallery since its inception. In anticipation of their 100th anniversary in 2024, the AGA established a framework for a family of funds agreement that will secure a sustainable source of funding for the future.
