RMG

The RMG is celebrating Culture Days and Doors Open Oshawa on Saturday, September 24th. There’s so much to explore!

Admission and events are all FREE!

Join a guided architecture + art tour

11 AM and 2 PM

Our welcoming Visitor Engagement Assistants will deliver tours of this stunning modern building. Discover the original vision for Oshawa’s public gallery, brought to life in 1969, and how architect Arthur Erickson designed a massive 36,000-square-foot extension that made the gallery what it is today.

Participate in a family-friendly art-making activity

1 PM – 3 PM

Design your OWN gallery! Led by our Learning and Engagement team, this drop in activity will invite you to explore Journeys, the major permanent collection exhibition, through an interactive scavenger hunt; then, use the inspiration you find to create mixed media artworks in the studio.
