Here's something you may or may not know. It's pretty big news for Saskatchewan, and really big news in the art world. We have a lot of galleries here. Art, music, theatre and culture is a pretty big focus in this city. As I flipped open the GalleriesWest magazine (fall/winter 2011), I came across this on page 16. I meant to blog it before, but I don't think I ever did! Check it out.

Isn't that incredible!? If you cannot read it, it states that a new $84 million dollar provincial 4-story gallery & performance theatre will be opening here in 2015. Ellen Remai donated $30,000,000 from the Frank & Ellen Remai Foundation. That made big headlines last summer being the largest philanthropic gift in our city's history. Apparently there will be enough funding for thirty years of exhibitions. WOW. A BIG thank you to her!
