Since 1980, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) has supported a provincial travelling exhibition program that strives to ensure every Albertan is provided with an opportunity to enjoy fully developed exhibitions. TREX exhibitions travel to various venues including schools, libraries, healthcare centres, and smaller rural institutions and galleries throughout the province.
