Leighton Art Centre

The Leighton Art Centre (LAC) is an art gallery, museum, and arts education centre located on 80 acres just outside of Calgary, near Millarville in the Alberta MD of Foothills.

Situated in A.C. Leighton and Barbara Leighton’s original home, the LAC houses a vibrant display of Alberta’s artists, both past and present. The Leighton Art Centre was established by Barbara Leighton in 1970 and was incorporated as a society in 1974.

Today the LAC is open to the public and offers a wide range of programming including Art & Nature and Art to Go programs for schools and community groups, professional development days for teachers and support staff, Art & Nature summer camps, adult and family nature education, collaborative artist residencies (daytime, non-residential), professional artist workshops, contemporary art exhibitions, rotating museum displays, art sales, and special events.
