GUIDED TOURS

At the Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre, nature is our gallery.

*Regularly scheduled Saturday tours for 2022 have ended, after a beautiful and busy season! If you are interested in scheduling a private tour for your group (minimum 6 people) during the off-season, please contact us at info@koartscentre.orgTickets: $25 (no charge for kids under 12 years of age)

You are also welcome to drop by at your leisure for a self-guided tour on Thursdays through Sundays, 10am – 4pm. The west half of the park is open during these hours for self-guided visitors; if you would also like to experience the private sculpture gardens around the house and studios, please inquire about private tours at info@koartscentre.org.

Please be aware that in the winter months the park pathways may be covered in snow and visitors assume responsibility for their own safety.

Dogs are allowed in the park during self-guided tours and they must be on-leash in order to ensure other visitors’ safety and to protect the various species of wildlife that move through the corridor. We also thank you for clean up and removal of any pet waste.

PAINTING ALBERTA

As part of your guided tour of the sculpture park, you will have the exciting opportunity to view Painting Alberta, a new exhibit by KOAC’s resident artist, Sabine LeCorre-Moore. Composed of 360 6″x6″ acrylic paintings, Painting Alberta has been built through five years of research in museum archives and interviews with individuals to discover the many facets that make Alberta. Along the way, the project has gathered numerous stories representing an extensive survey of the province’s past and present. Among images of idyllic countryside, mountains, and beautiful sunsets, you will find paintings depicting a residential school, conflicts, and major catastrophes. This in-depth exploration imparts us with a better appreciation for who we are.
