Audain Art Museum

Traditional works of the province’s First Peoples through to its contemporary masters, in one of Canada’s most treasured wilderness destinations.

Experience the Art of British Columbia


The Audain Art Museum opened in 2016 and was founded by Vancouver home builder and philanthropist Michael Audain and his wife Yoshiko Karasawa. The 56,000 square foot Museum, located in Whistler, British Columbia, was designed by the award winning architectural firm Patkau Architects. Set in a grove of spruce trees, the architecture is intentionally restrained in its visual presence to fit within the natural environment.

The Museum’s Permanent Collection showcases the Art of British Columbia from the late 18th century to present. Anchoring the collection is James Hart’s The Scream Too, the most significant contemporary carved cedar Dance Screen in the world. Other highlights include an important collection of 19th and 20th century First Nations masks and works by some of Canada’s most celebrated artists including Emily Carr, E.J. Hughes and the internationally renowned photo-conceptualists Jeff Wall, Stan Douglas and others.

In addition to the Permanent Collection the Museum has visiting exhibitions of art from Canada and around the world.
