Explore the Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA). A short walk from the Edmonton Conference Center. The building is itself a work of art that complements the exhibitions it houses.
Celebrating its prominent location on Sir Winston Churchill Square in the heart of the Arts District in downtown Edmonton, the AGA connects the Gallery and the community, welcoming visitors to experience art first hand.
Randall Stout, the architect chosen to design the AGA building, took inspiration from the city’s unique northern environment and urban grid. 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 foot (7,900 sq metre) AGA is a world-class centre for the presentation of regional, national and international art, education and scholarship. The building, which opened in 2010, features:
Three floors of premier exhibition space totaling 30,000 sq feet (2,787 sq metres)
- The Singhmar Centre for Art Education
- Zinc Restaurant and Terrace Café
- Shop AGA
- Art Rental and Sales Gallery
- 150-seat Ledcor Theatre
The Gallery in itself is a work of art that complements and completes the cultural precinct surrounding Churchill Square and solidifies Alberta’s Capital as a world-class city.
