PARC Retirement Living has announced a $250,000 donation to North Vancouver’s Presentation House Gallery. The gift will be directed to Presentation House’s new Polygon Gallery, currently under construction on North Vancouver’s waterfront at the foot of Lonsdale Avenue.
“The Polygon Gallery will transform arts and culture on the North Shore. PARC is proud to support Presentation House’s bold vision for the future of arts in our community,” said Rainer Müller, PARC’s Founder and Chairman. “Art can powerfully enhance quality of life and enliven the everyday, and we make it a priority in our PARC communities. We look forward to seeing the Polygon Gallery come to life and introducing our residents to it.”
PARC has partnered with Presentation House Gallery for many years. The goal of the current campaign is $20 million and this contribution brings the total to over $16.5 million.
Designed by BC firm Patkau Architects, the Polygon Gallery will be Vancouver’s first new public art gallery of the 21st century. The new building is designed to be operationally self- sustaining, and includes a gift shop and cafe, as well as exhibition and education space.
