The MacKenzie Art Gallery (MAG) is Saskatchewan's original and most comprehensive art museum, serving a leadership role in Western Canada. This is a watershed moment in the history of the Gallery, as it is undergoing a multi-phase organizational transformation. Programming primarily contemporary art from the prairies, Canada and abroad, the MAG addresses an encyclopedic range of visual art and culture and is an ally in the research and presentation of Indigenous art. Housed within an over 115,000ft2 facility, maintained to Class A Museum standards, the MAG permanent collection spans 5000 years of art with nearly 5000 works. MAG was founded on the collection of its namesake, Norman MacKenzie (1869-1936), who bequeathed his collection to the University of Saskatchewan (Regina College), now the University of Regina.

Opening in 1953 in the first purpose-built art gallery building in western Canada, the MacKenzie enjoys a nationally unique partnership with the University of Regina. After separating in 1990, and moving to its current premises, MAG now maintains separate board governance, site and an expansive mandate and quarters in the T.C. (Tommy) Douglas Building. The MAG is situated in Treaty Four territory, traditional land of the Cree, Saulteaux and Metis, and home to the Dakota, Nakata and Lakota
peoples. The MAG is located on the edge of the 2300-acre Wascana Centre, the largest urban park in Canada, where nature, culture and education meet. Wascana Centre (1962) was designed by renowned modernist architect Minoru Yamasaki, designer of the original World Trade Center in New York, and is a living artifact of modernist design heritage.
