Inuit Art Vault Tour

Global Winnipeg takes you into the WAG’s Inuit art vault where 7,500 carvings are stored. Home to the largest public collection of Inuit art in the world with over 13,000 carvings, drawings, prints, textiles, and new media, the WAG is building the Inuit Art Centre to make the collection more available to the public. The new building will feature a visible vault: a cylindrical, glass-walled art storage and conservation facility, displaying thousands of artworks, placing stone carvings on view at all times. This art-filled atrium will be visible to passers-by, completely changing the streetscape at the corner of Memorial Blvd and St. Mary Ave.
