Frank and Ellen Remai Foundation donates $30 million to build and operate Art Gallery of Saskatchewan
The Art Gallery of Saskatchewan project has received a $30 million donation from Saskatoon philanthropist Ellen Remai. The art gallery will be renamed the Remai Art Gallery of Saskatchewan.
$15 million of the donation will go toward construction, with $500,000 for programming and exhibitions over the next 30 years.
The donation is the largest in Saskatchewan history. With the Remai donation, only $5 million is left of the $20 million capital fund raising goal for the gallery. The four-storey gallery is set for completion by 2015.
