SAFE and SOUND
The Prairie Art Gallery Permanent Collection

On March 19, 2007, a large part of the Prairie Art Gallery's historic facility collapsed under heavy snow load. The Gallery's collection was trapped inside the frozen building while engineers prepared the site for a rescue effort. With the fire department on hand, the collection was removed from the building, beginning several months of work that has resulted in the prevention of any permanent damage any works in the collection. 335 of these rescued works are on display in the Gallery's temporary location.
