Glenbow’s new exhibit brings the unknown to life

The Glenbow Museum has a new exhibit that combines science and art to explore the idea of fairytales and monsters. It displays the unknown and uses genetic imagination to create a vision of future possibilities. The artwork in this exhibit is very unique and lifelike.

“This exhibition explores a lot of the concepts that are really popular right now in pop culture, monsters and the unknown,” says Megan Geyer, the communications specialist at the Glenbow.This exhibit comes from the Frist Centre in Nashville, Tennessee with Calgary being one of two Canadian cities displaying the contemporary artwork. It has 60 pieces of artwork created by 28 different artists. It is a very broad showing of up and coming and established international artists who have their work frequently featured at galleries in New York and San Francisco.

Starting September 29th, the pieces will be featured at the museum until January 3rd, so come down and see what this exhibit has to offer.
