Arctic Adventures Explored at WAG Family Day

Winnipeg Art GalleryThose wanting to learn how to do all-things winter will have a ball at the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Arctic Adventure Family Sunday on March 17.

From 1:30 to 4 p.m., families will learn what life is like in the Arctic. Everything from playing Inuit games and learning to build an igloo, to tasting bannock and writing your name in Inuktitut, the day will be an educational opportunity for families of all backgrounds.

“We have pretty much everything Arctic here except polar bears,” said Rachel Baerg, WAG Art Educator. “Creation & Transformation: Defining Moments in Inuit Art is one of our major Centennial exhibitions and it lends itself so perfectly to a really busy and fun Family Sunday.”

Admission is $10 per family (2 adults and up to 4 children 18 and under).
