New website kicks off WAG 2020 year

The brand new wag.ca is here!

Designed by Saskatoon-based developer Island, wag.ca aims to offer you an elevated WAG experience, even before you set foot in the Gallery. Please contribute to beta-testing by submitting feedback on the site as we work to perfect it.

wag.ca features an improved mobile-first user experience, streamlined navigation, and accessibility. Quickly access all the information you need to plan your next visit to the Gallery.

“wag.ca will carry the Gallery forward into 2020, renewing our connection with our community in the opening year of the WAG Inuit Art Centre,” says Dr. Stephen Borys, Director & CEO. “It will paint a more complete picture of the work we do here, and encourage you to engage with the art in new and exciting ways.”

It is now easier than ever for you to access the Gallery online. Find upcoming events and exhibitions, become a member, register for art classes, and book our venue. Track the progress of the WAG Inuit Art Centre construction and much more on the stories page.

Explore your collection like never before. The WAG holds a growing collection of historical and contemporary Indigenous and Canadian art, as well as the largest public collection of Inuit art in the world. Now, you can search for your favourite artists, works, or by key word.

ShopWAG’s selection of handmade gifts by Manitoba and Canadian artists will later be available for online shopping, and for now, you can browse to purchase in-store.

    I think it would be better if the About and Support headings were on your main page. Also a Contact button. These are only visible when you click on the menu button and not sure why they are hidden from plain view, so to speak.
    Otherwise, it looks great. Way more user friendly and intuitive than old version of the website where it was really hard to find even key visitor information.

    Thanks for your feedback, Laurie!

    I share the same thoughts as Laurie regarding the About and Support sections.
    Simply make them part of the main column.
