About the Museum

The Audain Art Museum opened to the public March 12, 2016. This museum, located on Blackcomb Way steps from the Village, houses a portion of the extensive art collection of Michael Audain, a home builder based in Vancouver.

Artworks at the Audain Art Museum

The Museum will contain a permanent collection of the art of British Columbia including an outstanding collection of nineteenth century Northwest Coast masks, one of Canada’s strongest Emily Carr collections, a selection of Vancouver’s celebrated photo-based art plus a gallery devoted to West Coast artist Edward J. Hughes.

The collection will include The Crazy Stair, a painting by Emily Carr which recently sold at auction for a record breaking $3.3 million. This price was the highest ever paid for an Emily Carr at auction, the highest for a work by a Canadian woman artist and the fourth most expensive work at an art auction in Canada.

In addition to the works from British Columbia the Museum will also accommodate temporary exhibitions from leading museums around the world, creating an ever-changing display to delight locals and visitors alike.
