The Excitement Is Building
The Ottawa Art Gallery is currently building a new gallery and its future address will be 50 Mackenzie King Bridge. Scheduled to open this Fall as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the OAG Expansion coincides with the revitalization of Ottawa’s downtown which includes the reconstruction of Rideau Street, the expansion of the Rideau Centre and construction of the new O-Train Confederation Line light rail transit project.
The new OAG will welcome the world to the first mixed-use gallery, hotel and condo project in Canada. At five times its current size, the new facility will stretch a full city block and provide unparalleled access to its collections, including the art of our region. Dedicated facilities for public and school programming, lectures, and activities will continue to enrich the lives of all community members.
