Surrey Arts Centre
Nestled at the edge of Bear Creek Park, the Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Ave) is home to the Surrey Art Gallery, which hosts a wide range of rotating exhibitions featuring local and international artists. Recent themed shows have included Pop Prints, focusing on the creativity of 20th-century artists like Andy Warhol and David Hockney, and Heaven's Breath, a new media installation interconnecting images of the Hindu god Shiva with contemporary digital technology.
The Surrey Arts Centre also has two theatres that present plays, live music, and dance performances. Browse the gift shop for pottery, paintings, jewelry, and more by local artisans.
