WINNIPEG — Works of Indigenous art will soon be on display at The Bay in Downtown Winnipeg.

The artwork will replace the building’s boarded windows and will include replicated pieces currently featured at the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Inuit Art Centre, Qaumajuq.

In a statement on Thursday, Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman said the “repurposing of the historic Bay Downtown represents an opportunity for renewal in a central part of our city.”

Bowman said he is contributing $10,000 from his office budget to the initiative. The federal and provincial governments are making contributions as well.
