The most exciting thing to come to Edmonton since the Stanley Cup, the stunning new AGA is the C$88-million, 2,787-sq.-m (30,000-sq.-ft.) home for revolving world-class exhibits. On any given day, you could take in Degas, Picasso, and Emily Carr; there's permanent room for Alberta's top artists, as well. It is a champion of First Nations contemporary art (think artists like Jane Ash Poitras and Carl Beam) and has been an incubator for curating talent that has gone on to larger institutions all over the country and around the world.
