Through thoughtful and engaging programs the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery (KWAG) connects people and ideas through art. The Gallery's exhibitions and programs are built on the mission that art is the catalyst for shared experience, dialogue and imagination. The Gallery emphasizes contemporary art, often premiering works by Canadian and international artists. Exhibitions frequently draw upon selections from the 4 000-work permanent collection to provide a forum for dialogue. KWAG plays a vital educational role in the community, offering a full spectrum of artistic experience for adults, children and families alike. Established in 1956 and operating within Centre In The Square, KWAG is the oldest and largest public gallery in Waterloo Region: roots in the community, eyes on the world. KWAG is a registered charitable organization, and is open to the public seven days a week, and open late in advance of Centre in the Square's evening events. The Gallery receives approximately 40,000 visitors annually, including 6,500 students through school tours and workshops.
