do :: AGA's Summer ArtBreak + Late Night Wednesdays


The Art Gallery of Alberta has a busy summer schedule that includes patio parties every Wednesday night, a new BMO World of Creativity exhibit, and a bunch of fun summer camps for kids!  We're pretty jealous, we wish we could attend the kids camps ourselves. 

Late Night Wednesdays

The terrace is open late on Wednesdays with signature cocktails, free guided exhibit tours, and a special discount at Shop AGA. Between 5-9pm on Wednesdays, your admission to AGA includes a complimentary cocktail and access to exhibit tours at 6:30pm or 7:30pm. If you spend more than $50 at Shop AGA, you'll receive 20% off your purchase (anyone need a new coffee table book?).

BMO World of Creativity: Cabinets of Curiosity

The whole family will leave with inspiration for building their own curious collection.
