The University of Lethbridge Art Gallery is open one Saturday per month for Culture Vulture from September through June each year, excluding October (U of L convocation) and December (Christmas break). In addition to providing an option to view the exhibition outside of our regular hours, from 11 am to 4 pm on these special Saturdays visitors can participate in a hands-on art making activity related to the exhibition. The activities are geared to be flexible for all ages from kindergarten through to adults.
All materials are supplied, admission is free, and no booking is required. For button making there is a charge for making the buttons, however, in addition to off-setting the cost of materials, the remaining money is donated to the uLethbridge Campus Food Bank.
People are welcome to just view the exhibition or to also try the activity.
Culture Vulture Activity and Main Gallery Open 11 am – 4 pm
All activities are in the U of L Centre for the Arts Main Atrium unless noted otherwise.
