FREE EXHIBITIONS:

THERE ONCE WAS A SONG BY MERYL MCMASTER. Take the opportunity to discover this new exhibition by Meryl McMaster, an artist of Nêhiyaw (Plains Cree), British and Dutch heritage. For the first time, she has created an exhibition where she combines photography with other media. Her work questions the desire to capture and confine the natural world in order to freeze it in time.

WEARING OUR IDENTITY – THE FIRST PEOPLES COLLECTION. Don’t miss your last chance to visit this magnificent exhibition, which closes on June 27! Learn about the importance of clothing in the development, preservation, and communication of the social, cultural, political and spiritual identities of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
