Recent Acquisitions



Organized by Glenbow

See what we’ve collected over the past year! This exhibition features contemporary Canadian artworks by Carl Beam, Marion Nichol, Barbara Tipton and more.

Be the first to see some of the fascinating objects that have been added to our Cultural History collection, including a treasure trove of ultra-fashionable women’s hats from the 1940s to 1970s.

Take a virtual tour with Daryl Betenia, Glenbow’s manager of collections who will show (and tell) you all about this acquisition of women’s hats. The hats were worn by Maude Sproule and came to Glenbow from her daughter Judy. Maude passed away in 1994 at the age of 85. She was married to John Campbell Sproule, founder of the Calgary petroleum exploration firm, J. Sproule & Associates. We know from Judy that Maude dressed fashionably throughout her life and was obviously particularly fond of HATS!
