Situated in A.C. and Barbara Leighton's original home, the Leighton Art Centre is a Heritage Home Museum and a vibrant display of Alberta's artists both past and present. And with 80 acres of land, the Leighton is also an ideal spot to get a clear view of the magnificent Rocky Mountains. The Leighton Art Centre hosts visual art exhibitions, creative workshops, nature walks, festivals and art sales, summer camps, and art inspired field trips throughout the year. Located just 20 minutes south-west of Calgary, in the Alberta MD of Foothills, the Leighton Art Centre is a must for a perfect day trip. Admission by donation. Hours of operation: June to Oct., Tues.-Sun. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Nov. to May, Tues.-Sat. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
