Located West of Calgary, in the community of Springbank on 20 acres of parkland, at 244034 Horizon View Road, the Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre and Sculpture Park has a simple proposition: to give back to the community by establishing a contemporary arts facility dedicated to the artist and to the aesthetic experience of contemporary visual arts that will contribute to the enrichment of Calgary’s cultural identity and Springbank’s community pride. The Centre will enhance the overall quality of life of our community, safeguard its pristine environment, and help recognize the role of culture as an economic driver. We hope to contribute to the development of a more cohesive arts community in Calgary by increasing audiences and support for the arts and by providing new opportunities for more offerings.
What we seek is to bring a lifestyle, a fusion of the experience of what art is… where people can come and mingle with the art, but also, for artists, to sit and contemplate life, retreat, and find inspiration in our future sculpture botanic garden, wetlands and woods sanctuary. Katie Ohe
