Off to the WAG

The Winnipeg Art Gallery is a unique piece of architecture. This granite monolith was created in 1912 and is a tight wedge at the corner of Portage and Memorial. It's a wild looking building, particularly from above. I've never taken the opportunity to explore it with my camera, but just happened to be equipped today as it played host to my daughter's birthday. Here's a quick from-the-hip perspective, but it's a stunning construction that really deserves more time.

  1. Interesting. My next post will be on Oslo and the opera house there, I think "arts" buildings have angular shapes in common.
