The Art Gallery of Guelph (AGG) is one of Canada’s premier art museums, engaging audiences with artists and ideas from around the world. Located in one of Canada’s most vibrant urban environments, the AGG offers compelling creative encounters in the community and contributes to a thriving cultural landscape nationally through global connections that foster public engagement and innovation.
Through the support of three major sponsors — the University of Guelph, City of Guelph, and the Upper Grand District School Board — the AGG is able to offer free admission to the public. Art lovers of all ages are welcome to come and discover exhibitions that highlight contemporary art as well as the gallery’s stunning collection of over 10,000 Canadian and international works, and to explore its Sculpture Park— the most comprehensive outdoor art collection at a public gallery in Canada — featuring permanent installations by regional, national, and international artists.
The AGG also hosts dynamic events, programs and classes throughout the year, including special activities for children, youth, and life-long learners. Public presentations, artist talks, and workshops provide context and enrich educational experiences, while the AGG’s March Break and summer programs, Camp Create, allow budding artists to create their own masterpieces, exploring a variety of materials and techniques.
