My adult son who lives in Winnipeg suggested to us, on our recent visit to this fair city, that we go to the WAG. We’ve been there before and it’s a lovely, well-set up, spacious building. However, my son’s specific wish was to go see the Kent Monkman special installation. It is a provocative, multi media spectacle with history, humour, and social commentary regarding numerous indigenous experiences and perspectives. A second visit would be great as it is difficult to extract all the meaning I’d like to have done, in only one visit. Each “second Sunday of the month” is currently free admission so that was a bonus. There was a youth program going on at the same time, and it certainly appears that, overall, the WAG promotes a lively and inclusive community.

Had an opportunity to visit for an hour. Not enough but between meetings. Interesting collection. Beautiful building. Would like to spend more time there on my next trip.

Expensive admission and parking. Something fun to do for us once a year but not enough going on to bring us all year round. It would be great if they had a toddler and childrens area like the Minneapolsi Institute of art.

The Winnipeg Art Gallery is a Jewel. Thoughtful art displayed in context. Cutting-edge art and traditional subjects are both available. Something for everyone. I appreciated how the museum took efforts to consider contemporary issues in a meaningful way. The existing building is getting bigger with a new Inuit Art Centre - but there is a lot to do in the current museum. While I had adult time, WAG is great for families too. The food was good and WAG had a great shop with unique presents. Really nice room terrace would be great in summer. Very nice people at the museum were very helpful too. Really good experience and a must-see.

We went to the art gallery specifically to see Kent Monkman’s Shame and Prejudice - A Story of Resilience as we had heard so much about it. The exhibit did not disappear although we found it a bit confusing as to the order in which to see the display. It is outlined with Roman numerals and written explanations but the flow wasn’t all that easy to follow. I did at the end, find the iPad display with the entire manuscript and after reading the author’s forward, the display really came together. I wish that I had read that first. Powerful and beautiful large pieces of art. Very worthwhile seeing.
