The Winnipeg Art Gallery and its future Inuit Art Centre: the construction of the centre, pictured here in an artist's rendering, has received a boost. The Winnipeg Foundation will give $950,000 to the WAG's project, the gallery announced Oct. 14. Its $45-million building will feature Inuit-focused art exhibitions, programming and research. The gallery already holds the world's largest public collection of Inuit art, with 13,000 pieces. Construction on the new 40,000-square-foot centre is expected to start in 2016.
