ULethbridge Art Gallery

Brief History and Highlights

Lethbridge is a small but dynamic city in Southern Alberta on the traditional territory of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot Confederacy). Two Blackfoot reserves neighbour the city, Piikani and Kainai, the largest reserve in Canada, with Lethbridge serving as an urban hub for the nearby reserves and surrounding rural communities. Lethbridge recently reached the population milestone of 100,000 residents, fueled by growth which has included a wave of new immigration that has greatly expanded the city’s demographics. The University of Lethbridge Art Gallery is a critical part of the city’s renowned art community and houses one of the most significant art collections in Canada, with over 15,000 objects.
