About K O Arts Centre Society of Calgary
Founded in 2007 with a donation of 20 Acres, two free standing studios/ and a residence/Gallery, KOAC has built an extensive collection of contemporary sculpture, at many scales, housed on The Sculpture Park grounds. The Founders joint “oeuvre” and collection of Canadian / international art will be donated to the Centre together with an endowment fund once we have The Pavilion ready to receive them. The Founders contribution to date is valued at $2,750,000. Through our fund raising efforts we are trying to at least match their generosity.
