Overview

The Bill Reid Gallery is the only public Gallery in Canada dedicated to contemporary Indigenous Northwest Coast Art and was established by the Bill Reid Foundation in 2008, to celebrate the Haida master artist Bill Reid (1920 - 1998), and the diverse living cultures of the Northwest Coast. The Gallery honours Bill Reid by exhibiting the Bill Reid SFU Art Collection, and presenting special exhibitions and programs that build bridges between all peoples, including Indigenous and settler populations. Our mandate is to promote a greater awareness of Indigenous cultures and values. The Gallery is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Vancouver and can be found within a short walking distance from the Canada Line’s City Centre Station located in Pacific Centre or the Millenium/Expo Line’s Burrard Station.

The tea cup & tea pot made out of chalk when Bill Reid was a very young boy is amazing. How creative for that age. If you like native jewellery it's excellent & the diamond studded necklace that Bill's wife wore when Princess Diana &...More

Beautiful exhibit - I learned a lot about Bill Reid and also looked for his sculpture in Vancouver airport. Beautiful works or art and jewelry. Great history of indigenous people.

Excellent examples of Bill Reid's jewellery work, from his reawakening of his native heritage to his mastery of design in that art form. This museum has many of his wife's personal pieces, as well as a retrospect of his other work, including the plans and...More

It’s an easy walk across the street from the Hyatt Hotel. The museum is lovely but the architecture from the outside is outstanding. I also took time to walk through and survive n the gardens. Be sure to visit this gallery during your trip.

Bill Reid's carvings in jade, wood, and silver are stunning on their own, but to have a single building dedicated to his work and his influence, is an honour for our city. A must-see on every visitor's list, in my view.
