In 2012, preparatory meetings to co-host the 20th session of UNWTO General Assembly began and it was in one of these meetings that the National Arts Council of Zambia proposed that among the structures to be constructed as a legacy for the conference should be an art gallery.
Construction of this first Government built art gallery was completed and handed over to the National Arts Council of Zambia on 21st August 2014. The facility was officially commissioned by the Minister of Tourism and Arts, Honourable Jean Kapata M.P. on 16th October 2014. It was a colourful event with entertainment from the National Dance Troupe and attended by over a hundred invited guests.
