The Big Picture Campaign: Framing a new art centre for Kenora

A new Art Centre for Kenora - that's the vision. 

A new art space deeply connected and rooted to the success of a well-established museum but free to strike out on its own remarkable path - that's the dream. 

A strong cultural presence in Kenora that inspires and supports artists, encourages creativity, strengthens community bonds, builds identity, invigorates growth, and says to the world, "We're unique. We have something very special to share with you. You'll be amazed." - that's the big picture.
