To celebrate the final day of its “100 Masters: Only in Canada” exhibition, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is throwing a street party.
The Labour Day celebration on September 2 will run during regular museum hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring live music, chalk artists, food vendors, and lots more.
“To date over 52,000 people have visited the exhibition ,” said WAG director Stephen Borys. “It’s the highest attended exhibition in our 100-year history and we didn’t want to let it go without some sort of final celebration. If you haven’t yet seen the show, or if you want to visit it one more time, we urge everyone to come down and help us make this final day something special.”
The WAG’s hours for the final week of the exhibition are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
