-Vancouver, BC-
Chief Development Officer
Vancouver Art Gallery

ORGANIZATION

Founded in 1931, the Vancouver Art Gallery (Gallery) is the largest public art museum in Western Canada, recognized as one of North America’s most respected and innovative visual arts institutions. The Gallery is at a pivotal moment in its long and distinguished history and is undertaking a transformative campaign to raise $350 million—$200 million from public sources and $150 million from private sources—to build an inspiring 300,000-square-foot museum in the heart of the city.

The Gallery recently announced a lead gift of $40 million for the new building from the Chan Family—the largest single private donation to an arts and culture organization in British Columbia. With a generous designation of the land at Larwill Park from the City of Vancouver in place and $135 million in total private and public sector funding secured, including an initial investment of $50 million from the Province of British Columbia, the next step for the Gallery’s capital campaign will be to continue its work with senior levels of government and the private sector to secure the additional funding needed to begin construction.

“We truly believe in the power of art to bring people together and to bridge divides, cultural gaps, to promote social understanding, and to help people better understand themselves and others, and that is what the new Vancouver Art Gallery building will help accomplish.”
- Gallery Trustee Christian Chan, speaking on behalf of his family

The Gallery has also recently unveiled the final designs for the new 300,000-square-foot building by world-renowned, Swiss-based architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron. Designed to serve the Gallery’s expanding collection and to present outstanding art and educational programs for its growing audiences, the new Gallery will provide a global platform for the thriving arts scene in Vancouver and Canada. It will play a vital role in establishing Vancouver as one of the world’s foremost cities for arts and culture. Unifying the crossroads of Downtown, Yaletown, Gastown, East Vancouver, and Chinatown, the new Gallery will fuel a hub of creative and cultural activity for local members, the public, and international visitors of all ages.

The Gallery’s innovative exhibitions, extensive public programs, and emphasis on advancing scholarship focus on historical and contemporary art from British Columbia and around the world. Over the past decade, the Gallery has experienced unprecedented growth in both its artistic and educational programs as well as in its organizational capacity. Attendance has nearly tripled to more than 525,000 visitors per year and membership has increased six-fold to 36,000. The permanent collection, which represents the most comprehensive resource for visual culture in British Columbia, numbers nearly 12,000 objects.

Throughout much of its history, and with an ongoing commitment in the future, the Gallery has celebrated the achievements of indigenous artists. Its exhibitions have contributed significantly to the development of indigenous art history and discourse, extending the artists’ reach geographically and into the future. The Institute of Asian Art was inaugurated in 2014 to recognize the extraordinary artistic achievements of artists with links to Asian countries, especially China, Japan, Korea, and India. In addition, the Gallery’s acclaimed Canadian and international contemporary program showcases works of renowned artists such as Jeff Wall, Stan Douglas, Liz Magor, Andreas Gursky, Bharti Kher, Takashi Murakami, and Rodney Graham.

Currently, the annual operating budget is $19 million—with 41 percent from earned revenue and 59 percent from private philanthropy, government grants, and endowment income. The endowment is more than $11 million and donations from the private sector have more than doubled over the past 15 years. The Development Division consists of a team of 15 full-time staff members, whose responsibilities include major gifts, annual fund, grants, corporate partnerships, special events, donor research, and database administration. David Calabrigo is Chair of the Gallery’s 23-member board of trustees.

COMMUNITY

As the host city of the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world, celebrated for its striking natural beauty, easy access to beaches, and great outdoors. The mild climate, ocean, and mountains combine to make Vancouver a year-round playground. Sailing, swimming, windsurfing, cycling, skiing, snowboarding, and hiking are all readily accessible, and the spectacular Stanley Park, located in the city’s centre, offers 22 kilometres of pathways for walking, cycling, running, and rollerblading.

The city has become one of North America’s most important gateways to Asia and is one of the most culturally diverse cities in North America. This diversity contributes to a thriving art, theatre, and music scene. Arts and culture aficionados can enjoy a multitude of events, including the Vancouver International Film Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Vancouver Folk Music Festival, and Festival d'été francophone de Vancouver. The city’s midwinter performing arts festival, PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, presents theatre, dance, music, and multimedia performances by Canadian and international artists. The city is also home to more than 50 professional theatre companies that host acclaimed operas, musical performances, and Broadway shows.

Both Condé Nast Traveler and Food and Winemagazine recently named Vancouver as one of the world’s best food cities. Local and exotic fresh ingredients representing tastes that reflect the varied cultures of the area are readily found in many local farmers’ markets and at the Granville Island Public Market. Microbreweries and distilleries dot the city’s diverse neighbourhoods. Vancouver is also home to several professional sports teams, including the three-time Stanley Cup finalists Vancouver Canucks. The BC Lions have played in the Canadian Football League since 1954 and have won the Grey Cup six times.

The education system in British Columbia is ranked first in Canada and is only behind Finland and Japan among peer countries. The University of British Columbia is a global centre for research and teaching and is consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world. For students seeking careers in film and television, the Vancouver Film School provides world-class training and hands-on production experience. The city is also a popular filming location.
