From its cliffside view of downtown Whitehorse, Yukon Arts Centre is the territory’s premier venue for visual and performing arts, hosting cutting-edge work from across Canada.
The Public Art Gallery presents exhibitions all year long, showcasing exciting contemporary art from the North and beyond. The rest of the building also surges with creativity. Spaces such as the Community Gallery and Yukon Electrical Youth Gallery display works by local artists of all ages. Pieces from the Yukon Permanent Art Collection are displayed on the balcony level and in the foyer, including Veronica Verkley’s Landscape with Horse, a life-size horse created from recycled materials.
Outdoors, explore more Yukon artworks in the Sculpture Garden, from a granite monument overlooking Whitehorse to boulder-sized sculptures in the woods.
