Free Calgary Art Tour Via Skywalk

This is a self-guided tour that uses the +15 Skywalk to take you through an art circuit in downtown Calgary. There are a few brief outside trips, but the tour is primarily indoors. There’s even an app for your phone. The tour includes bronze sculptures, wall hangings and traditional Japanese fabric art.

Sometimes it’s nice to take your time and explore. It’s convenient that you can do this in inclement weather because of the Skywalk. You can even cut across downtown on the CTrain Free Fare Zone to save some time. It’s a delight to visit shops and restaurants in the dead of winter without shivering. You can visit malls and specialty shops galore this way without lugging along a heavy coat and boots. Just be sure and download your Skywalk map so you don’t get lost!

February’s a busy month in Calgary, and these suggestions are just the tip of the iceberg. When you get tired of enjoying home life, try a change of pace with one of these exciting events!
