The Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) has grown into one of the country’s leading visual art museums with an international reputation. Founded in 1912 and housed in an iconic modernist building in the heart of downtown Winnipeg, the WAG is one of Canada’s first civic art galleries. Its impressive collection of over 27,000 artworks spans centuries, cultures, and media. Through the WAG Studio, one of the oldest gallery-run art-making programs in the country, the WAG promotes lifelong learning for artists at every level and age.
Power Corporation is proud to have contributed to the newly opened Inuit art centre at the WAG, Qaumajuq. Meaning “It is bright, it is light” in Inuktitut, Qaumajuq is home to the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art in the world. A 40,000-square-foot addition to the museum, it features a stunning, three-storey glass vault filled with thousands of Inuit carvings. Through exhibitions, research, education, and art making, Qaumajuq is a place to connect with others in a true spirit of reconciliation.
