The Nickle Arts Museum champions western Canadian contemporary art and numismatics – the study and collection of money and coins – from its location on the University of Calgary campus in the new Taylor Family Digital Library.
It’s a wonderful exhibition space with a track record of provocative exhibitions and informative programs.
One of the museum’s most important features is its 16,000-item strong coin collection that includes ancient pieces from the Greek, Roman and Byzantine periods. The permanent collection has over 3,500 prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, sculptures and decorative art pieces. The Nickle Arts Museum is also home to the Jean and Marie Erikson Rug Collection, the largest public collection or rugs in Canada.
There are temporary exhibits that change throughout the year.
