The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) offers free admission throughout the summer.
The museum, located across from Brampton City Hall, also announced two new summer exhibits.
“Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) invites you to stay local and visit this summer for free! Come enjoy our new art gallery exhibits, ‘Regalia: Native Pride’ and ‘Peter Powning: A Retrospective’ , says a press release from the museum.
Peter Powning: A Retrospective (until October 30)
“This important exhibition by New Brunswick ceramist and sculptor Peter Powning spans a remarkable 50-year career. His exploration includes a wide variety of materials such as his early functional glass, clay, cast bronze, stone and steel pottery. The superior quality of her work and her commitment have earned her a unique place on the Canadian art scene.
Browning will be present at the opening of the exhibition, scheduled for July 7 at 6:30 p.m., for an artist talk.
REGALIA: Indigenous Pride (until October 30)
“Photographer Roland Lorente and writer Aline Saffore traveled nearly 10,000 kilometers in Eastern Canada to attend more than 20 powwows. This exhibit is the result of their time spent photographing and interviewing dancers at every powwow.
PAMA is also hosting two programs this summer, including the PAMA Museum Detective Summer Challenge for kids ages 4-12 and Forest Bathing with Sock Gee Gan for participants of all ages.
The PAMA Detectives Summer Challenge takes place every Thursday between July 7 and August 25 from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
“Earn your badge as a PAMA Museum Detective this summer – complete a series of activities each Thursday and enter each time to win mystery prizes,” reads a statement from the city.
The Forest Bathing Program is a guided therapy program that runs July 21 from 3:30-6:30 p.m. and August 13 from 1:30-4:30 p.m.

Forest therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bathing” Experience the benefits of slow-paced wandering in nature with a guide trained in forest therapy on this guided trip.”
