The Donald R. Sobey Foundation with The Sobey Foundation is donating $10 million to the new Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
The donation follows on the heels of the Art Gallery’s announcement of the winners of an international design competition for the new gallery: Toronto-based KPM Architects with Omar Gandhi Architect, Jordan Bennett Studio, Elder Lorraine Whitman (NWAC), Public Work and Transsolar.
“As Nova Scotians, we are exceptionally proud to live in one of the most beautiful and culturally rich places in the world. The role that artists can play in shining a global spotlight on our province will be strengthened by this bold new vision for internationally recognized cultural infrastructure. The Sobey family looks forward to our province's enhanced capacity to welcome the world with this visionary arts district."
