I know that carved wood and stone is very much inuit art. I was unsure it's limited to that. I'm sure ultimately it will have more elaborate things, but that remains an obnoxiously inefficiently designed building. Yes, museums and art galleries usually are, but not for such a specific niche. And for clarity, I don't demand a 4,000 CRU unit instead, just not something THAT indulgently wasteful.

I'm assuming you're talking to skylarr but I also appreciate carved stone... very much so.

Look man, i get where you're coming from, but it's a stretch to call someone racist in every post. I'm pretty sure he's fed up with the degree of government pandering here... ie bajillion dollars for some poor space usage.

I've heard there will also be some moving around of existing galleries and spaces into the new building as well. Studio will reopen in the new wing, I think the shop might move, and existing galleries will be shuffled around.

Sorry, but you are really not making a lot of sense. You say that you hope the displays are more elaborate but it's unclear to anyone what your point is. It's an art museum that contains art. Art museums aren't generally elaborate, the piece of art is supposed to be the star. The Mona Lisa isn't surrounded by elaboration, it is just presented clearly for the viewer to appreciate. Perhaps you were hoping for a stuffed polar bear or dog-sled rides? Look forward to being in your next omnibus treatise telling us how it really is.

I guess like art it's subject to everyone's own opinion, i think the building look great and will be a welcome addition to the architectural scene in Winnipeg.

I'm a little torn, on one hand the new WAG addition clashes a bit with the original building which has a very standalone sculptural character and in my opinion, slightly diminishes its impact.

On the other hand, it does fill out the block and defines the corner a lot better than what was there before. It's also a pretty nice building on its own. I suppose I just wish that they could have kept a bit of space between the two which would have ultimately benefitted both buildings, but I realize there isn't a lot of space to play around with.

I much prefer the new inuit centre to the wag studio that was there before.

I think the new addition will complement the existing building and look great.

Agreed, everything in that whole area of Memorial Osborne really looks nice and cohesive except the Bay parkade. Big, grand buildings made of tyndall and limestone (or at least that style of stone).
