The Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) is the fifth-largest art gallery in Canada and the largest in Western Canada. Its permanent collection of over 9,100 items includes more than 200 major works by Emily Carr, the Group of Seven, and illustrations by Marc Chagall.

The VAG is located in the former main courthouse for Vancouver. The original 165,000 square foot (15,329 square metre) neoclassical building was designed by Francis Rattenbury after winning a design competition in 1905.

On the Georgia Street side of the building is the Centennial Fountain. This fountain was installed in 1966 to commemorate the centennial of the union of the colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia. In March 2007 the 2010 olympic countdown clock was placed in the front lawn of the Vancouver Art Gallery. It is open for free for the public to see.
