“There’s a time when you need to share the work with the public, so that’s what we’re doing. We’re creating this museum to place our work ‘for the inspection of the public. ” - Michael Audain
On Thursday, July 21 the Audain Art Museum will host a free public event framed as an interactive panel discussion comprised of world-renowned art collectors and museum developers. The over-arching theme of the dialogue will explore the intricacies of art collecting, museum building and the importance of philanthropic activities to the arts in Canada.
Furthermore, this dialogue will explore the effect on visual arts literacy and community building by illustrating how Lord Beaverbrook and his legacy of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery is a comparison to contemporary examples.
