Join the WAG’s Rooftop Club and Shake up your Routine
Summer sunshine and fresh air always makes us feel alive and full of energy. Now the Winnipeg Art Gallery is out to help build a healthier, happier, well-balanced you with the Rooftop Club, a new line-up of summertime activities and events that will feed your body, mind, and soul. Digital camera workshops just in time for your holidays. Lifestyle seminars including goal setting, better communication skills and the secrets of laughter yoga. Comedy and trivia nights. Zumba classes to get you in shape for bathing suit season. Wine tasting. Drawing classes and much more. And (weather permitting) it all takes place in our rooftop sculpture garden. What a great way to spend a summer evening!
Here’s how it works. Sign up for at least one course/workshop and one event, and you’re in the Club! You can sign up for as many courses and activities as you want, and, you also receive three months of free Gallery admission. If you are already a WAG member, you will receive a discount on all Club events. Courses and events take place early in the evening beginning at either 5:30 or 6:30pm, perfect if you are working downtown and don’t want to bother going home and coming back down. Most of the activities are finished by 8pm so you have the whole rest of the evening to enjoy.
“This summer we want to transform the WAG into a place for fun and community,” says Art Educator Anna Wiebe. “The Rooftop Club offers you a full summer schedule of fabulous activities designed to develop and expand your senses. Sign up with friends or come out on your own.”
To see the full line-up of Rooftop Club programming please visit wag.ca. Class numbers are limited, so early registration is recommended.
Approaching its centenary in 2012, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is Canada’s oldest civic art gallery and Manitoba’s leading visual arts institution. With a collection of over 24,000 objects spanning many centuries and cultures—including the world’s largest collection of contemporary Inuit art—the WAG is constantly moving between the historical and the contemporary in an effort to engage a growing public with the power of art in our lives.
