Regional museum exhibits inspire

F

rom Edmonton to Calgary (and certainly in between), Alberta has
an abundance of top-notch museums. Here’s a look at some of the
temporary exhibits to keep on your radar this year.

MAY 25-AUG. 18, 2013
M.C. Escher: The Mathemagician at The Glenbow Museum
One of Western Canada’s largest museums, The Glenbow
Museum in downtown Calgary welcomes to its impressive
collections of cultural history, military history, ethnology and
mineralogy, the temporary exhibit “M.C. Escher: The Mathemagician.” Known for his surreal, confounding work, Escher
was often inspired by mathematics to create his wood cutouts, lithographs, and mezzotints. This exhibition will display
54 of his works on loan from the National Gallery of Canada.
NOW THROUGH JULY 1, 2013
A Story of Canadian Art: Art Gallery of Alberta
The Randall Stout-designed Art Gallery of Alberta reflects Canada’s
creative spirit from the outside in, housing more than 6,000 works inside the architecturally significant structure. Open until July 1 is A Story of Canadian Art,
showcasing the early 20th century collection from Hart House at the University
of Toronto, featuring artists such as A.Y. Jackson, Emily Carr, and David Milne.
