In a couple of the past shot you will see a crane in the background. It's the construction grounds for the new art gallery.
The Edmonton Art Gallery was a bunker of a building. Almost windowless, small and lacking the infrastructure to host large traveling art shows.
The new Art Gallery of Alberta has been a political sticking point. As is all to common many people view these facilities as needless, or playthings of the rich and affluent.
The cost of the new building will come in around 200 million. A large portion was paid for by private people or companies. a combination of federal, provincial and municipal tax dollars makes up the balance.
bellow is a sketch of what the finished product will look like.
