With its soaring spaces, state–of-the-art features, remarkable exhibitions and dramatic event spaces, the Art Gallery of Alberta is a stimulating and thought-provoking environment.  This is why it was specifically selected as the WCFC 2016 venue.

Inspired by Edmonton’s geography, Los Angeles based architect Randall Stout engaged the duality of Edmonton’s urban grid layout juxtaposed against the winding contours of the North Saskatchewan River to create the design for the new Art Gallery of Alberta. The swirling forms of the ‘Aurora Borealis’ weave between the interior and exterior of the structure. Selected to reflect Edmonton’s dramatic weather patterns, the steel, glass and zinc create a dynamic quality that allows the building to transform along with its natural surroundings.

WCFC attendees will also be treated to Chef Dave Omar and the Zinc Culinary Team’s ‘simple elegance’ approach to food and beverage service. Their priority is to work with Alberta farmers in order to provide the most intense, fresh and local flavours possible, complementing the striking surroundings.
