Glenbow’s vision is for more people to experience art and culture more often. In February of 2014, Glenbow announced its new direction – to provide visitors with a new kind of art museum experience. Glenbow showcases world-renowned travelling and permanent exhibitions that are meaningful to many diverse groups in our community, boasts the largest art collection in Western Canada and provides access and care to our collections. Glenbow also tells the story of Southern Alberta and the West to thousands of visitors to our city each year through permanent exhibitions on our third floor. Glenbow is a member-based, not-for-profit, non-governmental arts and culture organization located in the heart of Calgary’s cultural district.
