The MacKenzie Art Gallery engages people in transformative experiences of the world through art. Inside the T.C. Douglas building, the Gallery is an immersive centre for art focusing on visitors and artists, Indigenous culture, and diversity. Grounded in history, education, and sustainability, the MacKenzie Art Gallery is located on Treaty 4 Territory—traditional territory of the Cree, Saulteaux, Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota people, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. Although the MacKenzie is Saskatchewan’s oldest public art gallery, it is relatively young compared to the culture that has been practiced and shared on this territory for millennia. We acknowledge and honour the deep art history of this land, and aim to serve both this history as well as current and future generations.
It is time to look again. At what a public art gallery can be. At what art reveals. At our history. At Saskatchewan. At each other. At ourselves.
