WAG Nominated for Three Manitoba Book Awards

Authored by: Heather Mousseau on March 17, 2011

We are so excited! Our publication The Winnipeg Art Gallery: Guide to the Collections has been nominated for three Manitoba Book Awards--Manuela Dias Book Design of the Year Award, the Best Illustrated Book of the Year Award, and the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award. Designed by our Head Designer Lisa Friesen, with stunning images by our photographer Ernest Mayer, this publication features 400 highlights from our permanent collection of more than 24,000 works of art. “This is the first volume to provide an overview of all the collecting areas that have come to define Canada’s oldest civic art museum,” says WAG Director Stephen Borys.

We have received several Manitoba Book Awards for past publications and are looking forward to adding even more on April 17. We'll let you know how we make out!
