Since the Calgary Expo's inception in 2006, an exclusive limited
edition artbook has been produced featuring the creations of the
imaginative and generous artists who have made the Expo possible. The
artists are given a theme and produce original pieces to be published in
the artbook. The artbook is produced in conjunction with a charity,
and the original art gets donated into our Charity Auction.
If you are an artist, and are interested in submitting artwork for this year's artbook, please read through our
submission guidelines here.
