Become a member
The Women's Art Museum of Canada / Musée d'art de la femme du Canada needs your support as member to continue developing the museum and our work—to showcase Canadian women's art and build a permanent collection for public viewing. Our small museum located in La Cité francophone in Edmonton now houses in its permanent collection our first artwork, a small oil sketch by Margaret Chappelle (1915-1992).
This progress was made possible through the help of our members, through their contribution of membership dues, the generous donation of their time and an active support of WAM / MAF programs. Please consider supporting the development of the museum by purchasing a membership.
