Pivot at the Glenbow Museum

by Janice Grey · 0 comments


The Glenbow Museum, located at 130 – 9 Avenue S.E., is a popular destination for local Calgarians and tourists alike. With an array of permanent and special exhibitions and changing programs, they are well-equipped to tantalize your art senses. If you are a long-time art lover or aspiring to become one, their memberships allow you explore to your heart’s desire (during opening hours only of course!). They have a variety of membership options, so there is something to please everyone.

If you wish to take your love and knowledge of the arts to the next level, the Glenbow also offers a program called Pivot.

Following the lead of world-class galleries, the Glenbow created Pivot, a program with the goal of offering a centralized location for individuals to connect and engage in dialogue about contemporary ideas in the Calgary arts and culture scene. The Glenbow is the meeting place and due to its location in the downtown core and its proximity to galleries, museums and festival locations, it is ideal. Through Pivot, the Glenbow offers its members the opportunity to increase the awareness of arts and culture offered throughout the city, to generate fresh ideas and to contribute to creating a lively and flourishing arts and culture scene.

You may have already heard of Pivot – it is not a brand new program. However, the Glenbow did introduce some changes in 2013. One significant difference is the membership price, which was reduced to $300 a year for two people. Membership has a number of advantages above and beyond the opportunity to meet with like individuals. Your annual membership also includes access to exclusive Pivot events, free general admission to the museum, discounts on specials events and reciprocal access and privileges at select museums across North America. You will also have the opportunity for behind-the-scenes tours and the chance to connect with current arts and culture leaders. Visit the Pivot website listed below for a complete list of benefits.

Note that although the program is aimed towards the “next generation”, it is open to all ages, resulting in a diverse and dynamic group of people with a common goal in mind. So, if you need an outlet for those pent-up ideas that you have been dying to share and desire the opportunity to shape the future arts and culture scene in Calgary, you should consider joining Pivot. They want you!

Join Pivot now to take advantage of 2-for-1 tickets to their Third Annual Ignite Summer Patio Party. It takes place August 9th on the Glenbow’s private +15 patio.
