MacLaren Art Centre and select locations in Barrie

Carnegie Days offers visitors of all ages great events that explore the role language plays in contemporary art. Exhibitions, public art projects, performances, author readings, artist talks, film and video screenings, guided tours and hands-on workshops take place at the MacLaren and across the city of Barrie.

Carnegie Days draws on the origins of the MacLaren Art Centre`s building as a 1917 Carnegie public library in Barrie and celebrates the legacy of Scottish-born American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who built over 2,500 public libraries in the English speaking world. Carnegie Days coincides with Culture Days, which highlights free, cultural attractions in downtown Barrie.
