My Daily Art
The Gallery’s first home on Main Street was designed by the American architect John Atchison. Its second building on Vaughan Street was by George Northwood and Cyril Chivers, a Canadian and British team.
The third and current structure on Memorial Boulevard was designed by Gustavo da Roza, who was born and trained in Hong Kong, and practiced in the United States before settling in Canada. Come full circle, American architect Michael Maltzan has partnered with Winnipeg’s Cibinel Architecture for the Inuit Art Centre project. As we look ahead to the opening of the Centre, we celebrate the rich lineage of design that has charted the WAG’s 108-year history.
While the WAG is temporarily closed, this series of posts from Director & CEO, Dr. Stephen Borys, shares a reflection every day until the Gallery reopens. Follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, or visit our stories section for this and more WAG@Home content.
