A desire to rebrand art’s elitist image has driven the design for a new, more accessible and environmentally-sustainable Vancouver Art Gallery. The new building will expand community services and education programs, showcase less-conventional media such as digital art, and enhance the city’s reputation as a destination for contemporary art.
