At Glenbow, we believe art is for everyone. As Calgary’s art museum, our purpose is to provide vibrant experiences that bring art and culture to life. We are committed to expanding the accessibility and impact of art and culture in our community, through exhibitions and programs that provide meaningful experiences for all our visitors.
As an independent non-profit, member-based organization, Glenbow generates over 60 percent of its operating revenue through fundraising, museum and program admissions and Glenbow memberships.
Glenbow is located on Treaty 7 territory, and respects the history, languages, traditions and cultures of the nations on whose traditional land we reside: the Blackfoot Confederacy, which includes Siksika, Piikani and Kainaiwa; the Tsuut’ina, the Stoney Nakoda First Nations, including the Chiniki, Wesley and Bearspaw bands, and the Métis Nation Region III. Their contributions to the museum and their continued support are integral to our success in educating our visitors and sharing the rich heritage of this land. We further acknowledge the vital connections we have to other indigenous people (including other First Nations, Inuit and Métis), whose visual and intangible culture is represented in our collections and exhibitions.
