The VPAG’s online programming will be posted on their YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, as well as on their website.
The VPAG’s Learning and Community Engagement Curator, Kelsie will be live streaming tours of their current SD#22 exhibition, Art from the Heart, as well as Bryan Ryley’s exhibition Morning Briefing.

In an effort to help ease the situation, the VPAG has decided to continue to provide opportunities for creative thought and practice through online activities to support our community as we practice social distancing. We hope our online tours and activities will help ease stress throughout this lonely and isolated time.
