Supporters of the new arts centre should circle the date on their calendar. On Saturday, Aug. 17, visitors will be welcome to come and tour the new space.
Recently, Lori Nelson from the organizing committee got to take a hard-hat tour, and she talks about the experience.
"It was great! It was great to be in that space, to see what the galleries look like, to see what the public space is like," she said Tuesday.
Kenora's new $4.5 million arts centre also got an injection of funds from the province this week. Nelson talks about how the $123,700 will be used.
"It will actually help fill the building, so we have places for people to sit, tables for people to work at, work spaces for staff and the all-important art storage system," she said.
Kenora-Rainy River MPP Greg Rickford announced the funds at the Lake of the Woods Museum in Kenora. He previously announced $1 million towards building costs, which were matched by MP Bob Nault on behalf of FedNor.
