The Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery is Waterloo Region's leading public art gallery, connecting people and ideas through art, with a focus on the best of contemporary culture.

From our humble beginnings in a bicycle shed to our current 23,500 square foot location in Centre In The Square, KWAG has worked for over six decades to strengthen the cultural and social fabric of our region.
