Spending my summer at the WAG

Party, party, party, happening at the WAG! All summer-long the Winnipeg Art Gallery has an awesome line-up of events that you NEED to attend! 

FEAST: Every Thursday, June 16 to August 11

Enjoy an exhibition-inspired, three-course meal at TABLE Restaurant on the WAG’s Penthouse Level followed by a tour of Chagall: Daphnis & Chloé exhibit.
