Even though the museum is closed until further notice, Glenbow staff members are busy putting together virtual tours, exhibits and educational content to give people an online escape from self-isolation.
And they aren’t the only ones creating virtual experiences for a quarantined audience.

“Even though we’re social distancing, this is all about keeping those connections going, building our community and having people feel like we’re all in this together,” said Jenny Conway Fisher of the Glenbow.
Glenbow has started releasing guided tours called “Glenbow From Home,” with each online exhibit featuring supplementary stories, activities and links for further research. Every Wednesday, they’ll update a new exhibit targeted at children and families that includes possible educational activities to try at home. On Fridays, they’ll post the exhibits that are geared towards adults, such as the anticipated opening of the Vivian Maier exhibit, or discussion with Métis artist James Brady.
