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.
From artists such as Paul Kane and Cornelius Krieghoff exploring the winter wonderland of 19th century Quebec to the Group of Seven capturing the majesty of the wild places across Canada, this exhibition shows how the history of Canadian landscape painting has informed our collective imagination and influenced how we envision and understand this country.
For almost 50 years, Glenbow has collected art and objects that represent the culture and history of our region and beyond. Every donation or gift that we accept, or item that we purchase, is acquired with the intention that it should be used to learn, understand and inspire. This exhibition is an opportunity to share some of the special items that Glenbow collected in 2015.
Join Glenbow in celebrating the 2016 JUNO Awards and Calgary's "Year of Music." The JUNO Tour of Canadian Art project pairs great Canadian music with great Canadian art! Past JUNO Award winners and nominees visited Glenbow and selected a work of art from our collection that resonated with them personally or artistically. Viewers can see the musicians discuss their selections in videos presented next to each artwork.
