Made in Calgary began as a series of five exhibitions developed by Glenbow that presented a survey of the visual arts in Calgary from the 1960s to the 2000s. As we look back on these five decades of Calgary’s artistic heritage, it is clear that the arts in Calgary have diversified as much as the city itself.

Through the artwork documented in this publication, made by hundreds of artists who have called Calgary home, one can come to appreciate the larger interconnected story of the visual arts in Calgary, and the many individuals and organizations who have contributed to its creation.

Made in Calgary includes vivid colour photographs of artwork by more than 200 artists; through these images and the context and commentary provided by the book’s authors, this publication captures the history and vibrancy of Calgary’s visual arts through the eyes and experiences of those who lived it.
