Located just steps from vibrant Robson Street in downtown Vancouver the Vancouver Art Gallery offers the city’s top cultural experience. Wander through four floors of inspiring art treasures in one of Vancouver’s most iconic buildings.
The Vancouver Art Gallery is housed in the former main courthouse in Vancouver. Architect Francis Rattenbury designed this neoclassical building in 1905. Rattenbury also designed both the Empress Hotel as well as the Parliament Buildings in Victoria, British Columbia.
The Vancouver Art Gallery made its debut in 1931 with a small collection of British paintings and only seven works by Canadian artists. The Vancouver Art Gallery is now home to a permanent collection of over 10,000 artworks, featuring more than 200 major works by famous Canadian artists Emily Carr and other famous British Columbian artists.
See major works by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists and history’s greatest masters. Be sure not to miss the work of Emily Carr when spending your afternoon at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Emily Carr (December 13, 1871 – March 2, 1945), born in Victoria, B.C., is one of Canada’s most renowned artists, significant as a landscape painter and a modernist. The most important B.C. artist of her generation, she is best known for her attention to the totem poles of the First Nations people of British Columbia and the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest.
