The Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) Expansion and Arts Court Redevelopment project is part of a long-standing vision for the revitalization of Ottawa’s downtown. It will provide a new Ottawa Art Gallery and help raise the profile of Arts Court as the City of Ottawa’s downtown arts centre, located on Daly Avenue in the heart of Downtown Rideau’s retail, arts and theatre district, surrounded by the University of Ottawa, the Rideau Centre, the Convention Centre, and steps away from the Rideau Canal, National Arts Centre, Byward Market and new LRT stations.
