Public Art Galleries
Browse through the large collection of Aboriginal and Metis works at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba in Brandon. And drop by Dauphin's Watson Art Centre and the Portage and District Arts Centre and Gallery to see watercolours, pottery and carvings inspired by wildlife, city life and the Manitoba muse.
You'll find dazzling pieces of Inuit art at the Eskimo Museum in Churchill and at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, where you can peruse European Renaissance and baroque art, Group of Seven works and an eclectic collection of contemporary pieces. Stay after hours for DIY workshops and late night events or drop in at midday to sit in on an Art for Lunch talk.
La Galerie at Centre culturel franco-manitobain in St. Boniface is the place to see new works by local, national and international francophone artists.
And you'll enjoy the views indoors and outdoors at Assiniboine Park's Leo Mol Sculpture Garden and the Pavilion Gallery Museum, which exhibits works by prominent Manitoba artists alongside Winnie the Pooh art and artifacts - in case you didn't know, the bear who inspired A.A. Milne's Pooh tales is named after Winnipeg.
