The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) has launched its new user-friendly website which reflects true colours of the freshly renovated state-of-the-art complex.
“We are thrilled to have the new website online,” said Claire Loughheed, manager of PAMA. “The design has gone through many evolutions and we feel it truly reflects our new operation.”
Loughheed said the website is more user-friendly and informed that PAMA will be also launching a new series of “Try it for $20” programs in October next after the opening of the Art Gallery on Sept. 30.
Apart from various other programs, visitors can view and register for PAMA programs available for the whole family; learn about upcoming events; see highlights from the collection online; and access information on renting PAMA spaces, booking a tour.
The website has interactive games designed for kids to learn about art and culture.
PAMA offers a number of arts and culture programs for all ages throughout the year. As an introduction to PAMA’s programming, they are offering a special “Try it for $20” deal. This deal gives people an opportunity to try any program from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, at a cost of just $20.
The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives is making history this year through a $16 million restoration and construction project that commenced in 2010 to enhance the land and buildings that hold the Region of Peel’s museum, archives and art gallery.
When PAMA re-opens, there will be expanded exhibition space and state-of-the art collection storage. PAMA will re-open in three stages, with the Art Gallery opening on Sept. 30, the grand opening on Nov. 24-25, and the Family Day and Archives opening on Feb. 18, 2013.
PAMA is a place for children and adults to explore and learn about Peel Region’s culture and heritage. It offers a variety of workshops and programs for all ages and provides family-friendly activities and free drop-in workshops throughout the year.
PAMA collects, preserves and displays art, artifacts and archival documents significant to Peel’s culture and heritage.
Operated by the Region of Peel, PAMA is located at 9 Wellington St. E. in Brampton. For further information, visit the new website at
