Art Gallery of Saskatchewan “rock solid” for River Landing

City manager Murray Totland says the proposed $50-million Art Gallery of Saskatchewan is now “rock solid” with all funding agreements between Saskatoon and the provincial and federal governments completed.  Announced two-years ago, the art gallery is still in the design stage but construction should begin as early as 2012. The gallery will be built next to the Persephone Theatre at River Landing in Saskatoon’s Central Business District.

As it opens, the Mendel Art Gallery will cease to operate at its City Park location where it has been since 1964. A wing within the new gallery will serve as a tribute to Saskatoon’s first gallery and the Mendel family whose generous financial contributions made it possible. A planning process for renewalof the Mendel site and Kinsmen Park is underway.
