Glenbow to celebrate fifth annual Community Day on March 18

There’s always a lot going on at the Glenbow.

So much so that it’s difficult to keep track of it all let alone set aside the time to catch every opening, see every new exhibit or, heck, even just make sure you revisit and remind yourself how important it is for the city.

Well, for the fifth straight year they’re going to make it a little easier by holding their annual Community Day, Sunday, March 18. The day was first launched in 2013 as a way to celebrate and bring together the city while it was recovering from the floods, and it’s now become an important part of their calendar.

On that day, admission to the Glenbow will be free for all and, if you haven’t been keeping track, aside from the usual excellence on display, the current crop of exhibits includes: Frida Kahlo: Her Photos Explore, a photo collection of the iconic Mexican painter; One New Work: John Will: Photography R.I.P, which features more than 40 paintings, prints and photos from the artist’s career; Sandra Sawatzky’s The Black Gold Tapestry “(illuminating) thousands of years of human ingenuity, progress, disaster and prosperity”; and the Eye of the Needle exhibit, featuring Intricate works of art, craft and fashion.
