Glenbow continues its celebration of its collections with the new exhibition 2001: An Art Odyssey: Recent Acquisitions to the Contemporary Collection.

The exhibition features over 30 artists, including a wide range of Canadian artists such as John Will, Andy Fabo, Aganetha Dyck, Attila Richard Lukacs, Leila Sujir, lain Baxter, and Jamelie Hassan.
