Founded in 1924, the Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA) is the oldest cultural institution in Alberta and the only museum in the province strictly devoted to the exhibition and preservation of art and visual culture. Taking inspiration from the city’s unique northern environment and urban grid, architect Randall Stout juxtaposed angular windows against a winding 190-metre steel ribbon that references the forms of the North Saskatchewan River and Aurora Borealis. The 85,000 sq ft AGA is a world-class center for the presentation of regional, national and international art, education and scholarship.
