Display space provided by Parkland Mall much appreciated

After a year-long renovation project, the transformed Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery will reopen in February 2010 with spacious galleries, inspiring history and art exhibitions, innovative programs and engaging social events for families and adults.

After a year-long renovation project, the transformed Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery will reopen in February 2010 with spacious galleries, inspiring history and art exhibitions, innovative programs and engaging social events for families and adults.

Although renovations created some disruptions for staff, volunteers and museum visitors, we continued operations at three separate locations. Most importantly, efforts were made to maintain a public gallery and programming space.

Parkland Mall stepped in to support a unique idea — the MAG at the Mall. Because of this valuable relationship, MAG was able to continue our exhibit and family program activities during renovations. This temporary gallery is now closed, but we continue to have a presence and are able to showcase our community history and highlight upcoming MAG exhibits.

We’re very thankful to Dan Hachey, mall manager, and Donna Vincent, marketing manager, and the many staff that helped to make this arrangement work. It was a very positive experience and enabled us to welcome old friends and greet new visitors.

Parkland Mall is a great supporter of the arts and culture community, and the museum in particular. Our long-standing relationship originated when the mall threw their support behind the annual Heritage Fair, providing a venue for Central Alberta school students to present history projects.

Our revitalized spaces are built upon a solid foundation, established over many years by community supporters. Red Deer is a dynamic, energetic city: the museum’s “MAG-morphosis” reflects that vitality — engaging the future while honouring our past.

Many people and organizations have supported the efforts to bring the MAG to this new chapter. We wish to acknowledge Parkland Mall for their role in this transformation.

Lorna Johnson,

Executive Director
