The Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery has received the first corporate donation for its new permanent display on Red Deer.

Collins Barrow is providing $10,000 for the Remarkable Red Deer: Stories from the Heart of the Parkland exhibit now in development.

“Having served Red Deer for over 70 years, we are part of the fabric of the community and appreciate the work that the museum does to bring history to life,” said Collins Barrow partner Grant Stange in a release.

The display is budgeted to cost $1.5 million, with the city providing $1 million and the museum the rest.

The 4,800-square-feet exhibit is based on the themes Unusual Beginnings, Community Spirit, Leaders and Innovators and Our Red Deer. It is slated to open March 25, 2013, in time for the city’s centennial celebrations.

More information on the project is available online at www.reddeermuseum.com.
