Recent Acquisitions 2014
October 24, 2015 - February 7, 2016
For almost 50 years, Glenbow has collected art and objects that represent important facets of the culture and history of our region and beyond. Continuing to expand the collection ensures that it evolves and remains relevant. With our new focus as an art museum, we continue to place importance on acquisitions to the art collection, as well as to acquiring objects emphasizing design, craftsmanship, creativity and the art of making.
Just like a work of art, an everyday object can tell a story about how it was made, who used it and the cultural values it represents. Every donation or gift that we accept, or item that we purchase, enters our collection with the intention that it should be used to learn, understand and inspire. This exhibition is an opportunity to share some of the special items we collected in 2014.
