YYJ brings the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to travellers

The artwork displayed is also available for sale

For more than a decade the Victoria Airport has displayed local artwork, and now they’ve teamed with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to take the art to the next level, literally.

“This is an exceptional opportunity for both parties,” says Geoff Dickson, Victoria Airport Authority President and CEO. “We learned that the AGGV required display space in preparation for their upcoming renovations and we had just recently built an art display wall in the Upper Passenger Departure Lounge as part of our recent airport improvements. It assists the Gallery by providing needed space, it provides opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work, and it enhances the space and airport experience for our travellers. The arrangement is really a win-win.”

“We thank the Victoria Airport Authority for their dedication to bringing art to the community and their enthusiasm for working with us during the AGGV’s renewal,” says Jon Tupper, Director of the AGGV. “It’s a stunning collection of local art that showcases our region and the skill and range of our artists.”

The artwork displayed is available for sale and interested patrons can contact the AGGV at 250-384-4171 or click here for more information.
