Enhancing Arts and Culture in Calgary

Palmer Family Foundation


With an unwavering commitment to art and artists, community-building and downtown revitalization, the Palmer Family Foundation has enhanced arts and culture experiences in Calgary for decades.

In recognition of their gift to Glenbow Reimagined towards the design and installation of the pavilion on Glenbow’s rooftop terrace, the pavilion will be named in honour of the Palmer Family Foundation.

Recently, Glenbow announced that internationally renowned artist Maya Lin will design the 13,000-square-foot rooftop terrace, including the all-season pavilion, in the museum’s new home at the JR Shaw Centre for Arts & Culture. 
“We were inspired by the space and the potential ideas that Glenbow had for the pavilion,” says Seaman. “We were very excited that Maya Lin would be designing the space. We all think very highly of her work and are very excited about the ideas that she has for the space.”

“Once we saw the architectural design and ideas that Glenbow had for the Glenbow Reimagined project we wanted to be a part of it. The idea of opening Glenbow up to downtown Calgary and drawing people into all its wonderful potential was very exciting.”
