The Winnipeg Art Gallery is turning down the thermostat for its annual Family Sunday: Arctic Chill Out on January 29.

An afternoon celebrating Canada’s Arctic is planned, while also highlighting the WAG’s renowned collection of Inuit art.

“Arctic Chill Out offers families the opportunity to learn about the Arctic while spending quality time together,” said Rachel Baerg, WAG head of education.

Visitors can bundle up as they head outside on the WAG rooftop and walk the winter trail. Snow fort building, an igloo visit and a play date with Siberian Husky dogs are also on the agenda.

Music and stories by Christine Gordon-Tootoo and Duncan Mercredi will warm guests up again as they snack on bannock and sip tea in the galleries.

Arctic Chill Out, which runs from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., supports the WAG’s Inuit Art Centre. Admission is $20 per family (up to two adults and four children under 18) and $10 for WAG members.
