The Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) opens the world-class $65 million Qaumajuq (pronounced Kow-ma-yourk or How-ma-yourk) to the public on March 27. The building’s name means, “It is bright, it is lit” in Inuktitut. The museum is designed by U.S. Architect Michael Maltzan and meant to reflect the landscape of Canada’s North. It features the world’s first visible vault of its kind, which is three stories tall and filled with thousands of carvings.
Below is a sneak peek of this new Canadian treasure and its potential as a memorable backdrop for your next event.
Elevate your next meeting or event surrounded by stunning pieces of art at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. The experience begins with outdoor projection opportunities of contemporary Inuit artwork available on the building’s exterior, setting the stage for a unique photo stop and visual interest to an evening event.
Moving inside is the WAG’s Eckhardt Hall, its main event space, which connects with Qaumajuq. By combining the two spaces, there is flexibility to create unique spaces for your conference. Reception, cocktail and presentation opportunities are also available around the visible vault, where dramatic lighting and photo opportunities surrounded by thousands of Inuit art pieces are sure to spark conversation amongst attendees.
