The Winnipeg Art Gallery has been recognized for its long-standing dedication and contributions to the city’s downtown area.
The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ has awarded the Award for Outstanding Long-term Contributions to Downtown to the WAG.
“Downtown Winnipeg is proving to be quite the multicultural and artistic hub in our city and in Canada, with destinations like the Winnipeg Art Gallery,” said Stefano Grande, executive director of the BIZ. “The WAG continues to positively shape and re-energize our downtown, and with the upward momentum our downtown is experiencing in terms of revitalization, the arts and the WAG play an important role in making our downtown a vibrant place to work, live, and play—showcasing and celebrating the best and brightest of contemporary and historical Manitoba, Canadian, and international artists.”
The WAG also received the City of Winnipeg Community Service Award in September.
