The MacKenzie Art Gallery is developing an exciting new version of the Provincial Touring program to coincide with our new Art School curriculum. Please bear with us as we take a brief hiatus and stay tuned for new developments.
The Provincial Touring Artist & Exhibition Program is dedicated to making visual art more accessible to rural and northern communities within our province. This program is one of the MacKenzie Art Gallery’s highest attended public programs where schools and community members have the opportunity to see art with a trained educator in their own communities. The MacKenzie curates exhibitions with works of art from the permanent collection. Educators and artists set-up exhibitions in the community and deliver a comprehensive education program. Hands on art activities, designed to support the exhibition’s content, are used to further enhance the experience for students. Our programs are adapted for all grade levels and correspond with the Visual Arts Curriculum. Plus, it saves you the cost of busing students and time away from school to visit the Gallery.
In 1971, the MacKenzie Art Gallery launched what was then known as the Norman MacKenzie Art Gallery Community Program as a way to make visual art more accessible to rural and northern communities across Saskatchewan. By the mid-1970s the MacKenzie Art Gallery hired visionary artist Bob Boyer as part of the Community Program team, with numerous artists participating in a variety of roles since that time. The program hopes to continue to expand this mandate by bringing professional artists to communities. Art communicates across barriers of language, class and culture. When artists are able to share their stories and creative process it broadens our experience and helps us make sense of the world.
