Building western canada's largest SCULPTURE PARK

We collect and preserve our heritage of modern contemporary sculpture art – from monumental-scale to site-specific earthworks.

At KOAC, Nature is our museum. Visit our outdoor cultural exhibit. 

Featured sculpture: Steel Wave, by Roy Leadbeater

More than just a NOT-FOR-PROFIT

We provide a space for critical thinking and the exchange of knowledge. 

We bring communities together with contemporary art as a common language. 

Calgary’s Best Kept Secret

and its 20 acres in size…

Located in Springbank, Alberta, the KOAC is poised to become one of Canada’s leading cultural art centres and sculpture parks. Dedicated to the preservation of the surrounding environment, KOAC aims to be a fully self-sufficient contemporary arts facility that focuses on the enrichment of Calgary’s cultural identity and Springbank’s community pride. 

Sculpture Park

KOAC’s Sculpture Park is home to over 100 pieces, including a large collection of monumental-scale contemporary works by local and international artists. Stay tuned for the Park’s virtual tour, coming soon.

From our Patrons

Thanks to everyone who has supported and keeps supporting KOAC. 

We wouldn’t be here without you.

“The Kiyooka Ohe Arts Center has heart and soul and it comes from the two iconic founders. Katie Ohe and Harry Kiyooka are Calgary Arts royalty who have taught, mentored, curated, wrote, painted and sculpted Calgary’s contemporary art scene. Meeting them is an honour and a memory to be treasured.”

Deborah Herringer

Director, Herringer Kiss Gallery

“My wish is for KOAC to accomplish everything they set out to do for the future of Calgary & culture. Katie and Harry have all the knowledge necessary to provide a home for excellent examples of art.”
