AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Some might call it Edmonton’s Crown Jewel. To others it’s an eyesore. Either way, the newest addition to Edmonton’s art scene built by L.A.-based architect Randall Stout is turning heads. The austere concrete-and-glass structure downtown across from Churchill Square is home to a permanent collection of Canadian art—with a particular emphasis on work by Western Canadian artists. Opening exhibits included acclaimed works by Edgar Degas and portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh. Special lunch-hour lectures and family drop-in sessions are available throughout the week, except on Mondays, when the facility is closed. Got postcards to write? Have a seat at the Terrace Café or stay for a bite at Zinc restaurant featuring ingredients from local producers. The Refinery series of late-night parties occurs four times a year and is themed around AGA exhibitions. Visit the website for specific dates.
