The Big Picture Campaign

A new Art Centre for Kenora – that’s the vision.

A new art space deeply connected and rooted to the success of a well-established museum but free to strike out on its own remarkable path – that’s the dream.

A strong cultural presence in Kenora that inspires and supports artists, encourages creativity, strengthens community bonds, builds identity, invigorates growth – that’s the Big Picture.

Inspired by the generosity of longtime lake residents, Nicki and Bryce Douglas and their family, who will be donating their collection of Lake of the Woods works by noted Canadian artist Walter J. Phillips, the Lake of the Woods Museum’s Art Centre project is well under way.
