A unique insight into the rich artistic history of Alberta
11 January 2021
Made for This Place: The Leighton Legacy, a new project developed by the Leighton Art Centre, explores the lives and art of prominent Alberta artists A. C. Leighton and Barbara Leighton. Together, they travelled the world, pursuing artistic inspiration and places to call home. Eventually, they purchased land south of Calgary, where they built a home and founded the Leighton Art Centre.
This Community Stories project offers to a wide audience a unique insight into the rich artistic history of Southern Alberta through the Centre’s stories of adventure, creation and community-building.
