Panel Discussion: The Art of Philanthropy, Collecting and Museum Building
August 25, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“There’s a time when you need to share the work with the public, so that’s what we’re doing. We’re creating this museum to place our work ‘for the inspection of the public.’” – Michael Audain
On August 25 at 7pm the Audain Art Museum will host a public event framed as an interactive panel discussion composed of world-renowned art collectors and museum developers. The over-arching theme of the dialogue will explore the intricacies of art collecting, museum building, and the importance of philanthropic activities to the arts in Canada. Furthermore, this dialogue will explore the effect on visual arts literacy and community building using Lord Beaverbrook and his legacy of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery as a comparison to the more contemporary examples.
