In June of 2017, Portage College Museum of Aboriginal Peoples' Art and Artifacts (MOAPAA) was awarded a commemorative art project grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. This grant was to create a legacy artwork that reflects the evolution of Alberta's arts community over the past 25 years.
