Art's Alive and Well in the Schools 

In 1976 the Southern Alberta Art Gallery opened its doors. The following year we made a commitment to providing formative opportunities for Lethbridge students from kindergarten to grade 12. Through Art’s Alive and Well in the Schools, we have been able to honour youthful creativity by exhibiting their work in a leading contemporary art gallery. Now in its 42n d year, we estimate Art’s Alive has exhibited nearly 17,000 pieces over the decades. This exhibition continually reminds us that art is a fundamental aspect of learning and development.

Eleven Cooksville Skyway
Special project with David Hoffos in combination with Art's Alive

In a special collaboration between the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Emily Promise Allison, and the Lethbridge School District, David Hoffos brings his signature do-it-yourself embodied cinema to this year's edition of Art's Alive and Well in the School. Eleven Cooksville Skyway is a nearly-there but made-up address - and something very real is about to happen outside. Folks young and old around the globe have gathered before their radios and TVs. The evening is July 20th, 1969 - and the party is starting. Later it's 3:00 am, and nothing will ever be the same again - especially at 11 Cooksville Skyway.
