Update: Exhibition Destroyed in Slave Lake
The exhibition 75 Million was nearly done travelling through northwest Alberta with The Prairie Art Gallery and was set to go to southern Alberta in September.

To ensure future venues are not without artwork, Adrian Stimson is generously creating a new exhibition with new artworks based on the subject of the bison. It’s scheduled to travel to TREX venues beginning in September 2011. The new exhibition will travel with The Alberta Society of Artists and be on display in venues in Southwest Alberta. In March 2012, it will tour with the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre in Southeast Alberta.
