Visit the Art Bank during Doors Open

Visit the Art Bank during Doors Open Ottawa
Saturday, June 2, 2018 (Saturday only)
10am to 4pm

Canada Council Art Bank
921 St. Laurent Blvd

Wheelchair accessible. Limited parking available.

Join us on Saturday, June 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for our second open house held as part of Doors Open Ottawa!

We’re thrilled to offer the exclusive opportunity to visit the Art Bank and see the largest collection of contemporary Canadian art. For the first time, the Art Bank brings together close to 100 works of art to explore the notions of public transportation, urban development, migration, borders, sustainability, and the environment.  With the construction of the Ottawa Light Rail Transit system, the expansion of commuter bicycle lanes across Ottawa, and the ever-present roadwork, we are regularly reminded of how our movement about the city impacts one another.

Take a guided tour, explore the collection vault at your own pace, and ask our expert staff about anything from artworks to art handling.

This activity is free and open to the public. Please feel free to share our Facebook event with your networks!
