GRIT AND SCOTT MCCREATH
Grit and Scott McCreath are Calgary residents who were long-time supporters of the Mendel Art Gallery. They also wanted to contribute to the building of Remai Modern. In 2011, they donated just over $108,000 to Remai Modern. Recently, Grit and Scott decided to increase their investment to $250,000.
To recognize their generous support, one of the five permanent collection galleries on the second floor of Remai Modern will be named the Grit and Scott McCreath Gallery.
“Saskatoon is a very special place to us,” said Grit. “We’re very excited about Remai Modern opening in 2017, and are looking forward to making many trips to visit a city that means a lot of us, and a museum we will take much pride in.”
“This investment is very much a continuation of our first donation,” said Scott. “As we heard more and more about the plans for Remai Modern — the exhibitions, the programs and the impact it will have — we wanted to do more.”
Thank you Scott and Grit! We look forward to showing you the gallery named in your honour when Remai Modern opens in 2017!
