Adapted from the BC Government Release below:
The Province is fulfilling a longstanding commitment to invest an additional $50 million toward a new home for the Vancouver Art Gallery to protect and support the expansion of a cultural and tourism icon in B.C.
“The Vancouver Art Gallery is a flagship cultural institution in B.C., and we are proud to provide this additional investment to make this new building a reality,” said Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport. “The new gallery will be a social, artistic and commercial hub and will enrich tourism and cultural experiences in the region for residents and visitors alike. I’m especially pleased with the collaborative partnership with four local Indigenous artists to design the building exterior. Once built, it is sure to draw global attention as the largest building to reflect Coast Salish culture in the world.”
