#GRASSLAND


In anticipation of the Government of Canada’s promised introduction of federal legislation to legalize marijuana, the Penticton Art Gallery is hosting a ground-breaking exhibition,#GRASSLAND, exploring the politics, culture, history, art and economic impact of cannabis on our society. As far as we can tell this will be the first exhibition of its kind to be held in a public gallery in Canada and is already attracting great deal of public interest.
