Celebrate Galleries & Museums – Free Admission this Week at KAG

The Kamloops Art Gallery is pleased to announce that the Province of British Columbia has declared May 14 to 21, 2017 BC Museums Week. BC Museums Week celebrates the contributions of museums, galleries, historic sites and other related heritage organizations to BC’s communities and economy, while also raising awareness about the crucial role these institutions play in preserving and making accessible the province’s rich heritage. BC Museums Week is perfectly situated within the global museum calendar, as it includes International Museum Day on May 18. Internationally, Museum Day also works to shine light on the important role that galleries and museums play in building strong communities and encouraging respectful dialogue around complex issues.

In recognition of this week and international day of celebration, the Kamloops Art Gallery is pleased to offer free admission all week. Continue reading Celebrate Galleries & Museums – Free Admission this Week at KAG
