Art Galleries Have Birthdays Too!

Happy (belated) 10th birthday to the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art!

Earlier this year, the Bill Reid Gallery and its community of supporters and contributors celebrated a decade of sharing Indigenous art from our region. Since the gallery first opened in 2008, it has allowed the residents of Vancouver – and many from across the world – closer to the rich cultural heritage of North America’s Northwest Coast.

Even if you missed out on the birthday festivities, come and visit the latest exhibitions and installations and take part in the many programs the gallery runs. The gallery is housed in a beautiful and bright downtown Vancouver space on Hornby St. With a secluded green courtyard right outside and vivid art and sculpture on display inside, the gallery will spark any child’s imagination and is a perfect place to bring a family to enjoy beauty and culture. Richly decorated, but not overwhelming, you can explore the whole museum thoroughly and still have time to sit down on the grass outside and chat about what you’ve seen and heard.

Educational Programs at the Bill Reid Gallery

The Educational Programs at the Bill Reid Gallery are aimed at children of all ages. From storytelling to learning about nature, these programs are a wonderful way to enrich your child’s life and for the whole family to learn more about the Indigenous history and cultural heritage.

Home Away From Home

Home Away From Home is a Carnegie Cultural Sharing Program everyone in the community can enjoy. See a mix of cultures and crafts on display through the summer.
