Glenbow is pleased to announce acclaimed fashion designer Paul Hardy as the museum's 2015 Artist-in-Residence. Inspired by Glenbow's vast collection, Hardy`s curatorial debut is an exhibition examining how animal imagery and symbolism have influenced human creativity across time and cultures.
In David Thauberger's vision, the vernacular architecture of the prairies bursts with pop art iridescence. Familiar buildings like legion halls, grain elevators, diners and small town bungalows are flattened into postcard-like pictures that glow with neon colours and hyper-real skies.
For almost 50 years, Glenbow has collected art and objects that represent important facets of the culture and history of our region and beyond. Continuing to expand the collection ensures that it evolves and remains relevant.
Edmonton artist Lyndal Osborne’s "wonder room" fuses the fanciful and the factual, the real and the imagined. Children and adults alike are encouraged to explore this curious collection and get hands-on with the interactive exhibition.
