As one of the most significant recent additions to the Whistler landscape, the Audain Art Museum delivers hefty cultural panache to this upscale resort.
Drawn from the private collection of builder and philanthropist Michael Audain, the museum’s permanent collection features regional First Nations art over the last 200 years including Haida masks and pieces by Emily Carr and members of the Group of Seven.
Anchored by a carved cedar The Dance Screen by master carver James Hart, its contemporary displays are equally stunning. Look for works by Jeff Wall, Ian Wallace and Arabella Campbell, as well as whimsical creations such as towering totem poles made of golf bags. The annual parade of three temporary exhibitions makes this a must-revisit venue in between hitting the slopes and is a worthy day trip from Vancouver.
