Contemporary Art Gallery Endowment Fund

Children and Families create works inspired by exhibitions on display at CAG Family Day, hosted on the last Saturday of every month.

The Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG) is a non-profit public art gallery dedicated to the research, exhibition, education and documentation of contemporary visual art. As Vancouver’s longest standing independent art gallery, CAG  is recognized as a major advocate for the artistic brand of the city nationally and internationally.

Established in 1971 as the Greater Vancouver Artist's Gallery through federal employment programs for artists, CAG was incorporated as a non-profit charitable society in 1976. Over the years, CAG has evolved from a space for artists to produce art for exhibition, to an artist-run centre, and since 1996 is now an independent public art gallery.

The Contemporary Art Gallery Endowment Fund was established in 2005 by a group of dedicated patrons who believed in building a legacy for the cultural community in Vancouver. Their philanthropic gift can be seen today across Vancouver at exhibitions and projects in CAG’s Nelson Street galleries and at the off-site public installations at Yaletown-Roundhouse Canada Line Station.

CAG programs are offered  free of charge through an admission by donation policy

This fund also supports the Burrard Marina Field House Studio Residency Program, which connects art and artists with the community outside of the boundaries of the exhibition spaces. CAG contributes to a range of learning and public programming opportunities for participants of all ages, experiences and backgrounds.

Your generous donation supports the future of contemporary art in our community, and recognition of the importance and vital part it plays in the cultural health and well-being of any city. Thank you!
