Level 1 Gallery Donations
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights’ newest space, the Level 1 Gallery, is built to showcase temporary and travelling exhibits. The climate-controlled, smart technology-equipped space allows the Museum to house rare or precious artifacts and mixed-media exhibitions.
With this gallery the Museum is able to host some of the most sought-after human rights related exhibits and reach new audiences on an ongoing basis, including:
- Points of View (June 23, 2017 to February 4, 2018).
A national human rights photography exhibition.
- 1867: Rebellion and Confederation (December 13, 2016 to May 7, 2017).
An exploration of society in transition, it was the Museum’s first artifact-rich exhibition, which included Sir John A. Macdonald’s pocket watch, and diary of Lady Agnes Macdonald.
- Magna Carta — Law, Liberty and Legacy (August 15 to September 18, 2015).
Celebrating the 800th anniversary of a charter that sowed the seeds for democracy and human rights, the legendary Magna Carta was showcased at the Museum alongside some of Canada’s most important foundational documents.
In order to take advantage of a rare opportunity to bring the Magna Carta exhibit to Winnipeg and avoid any potential construction cost increases in the future, the Museum made the decision to move forward in developing the Level 1 Gallery shortly after the 2014 opening.
Although the Level 1 Gallery is open and running, Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is focused on garnering support for the outfitting, operating and maintenance of this key museum element. We hope that you will help the Museum enrich and expand its powerful and often life-changing experiences by donating, or making a major capital contribution, towards support of the Level 1 Gallery.
