Remembering Andrew Wilhelm-Boyles

The Winnipeg Arts Council is deeply saddened by the passing of Andrew Wilhelm-Boyles and we extend our heartfelt sympathies to his family. Andrew was Director of the Winnipeg Arts Council between 2002 and 2005, a pivotal time of change for the organization when it moved from an advisory committee to a fully incorporated arts agency. His leadership was critical to the formation of the Winnipeg Arts Council Inc. in 2002 and to the development of the Public Art Policy. Andrew established a municipal funding model for the arts that is still current. With his many accomplishments and adventures in the arts in Canada and internationally we were honoured that Winnipeg was one of Andrew's chosen cities. He will be greatly missed.
