April 3, 2018: City of Ottawa Public Art Policy and Art Acquisition Program
“Public art brings colour, beauty and imagination to neighbourhoods all over Ottawa. Whether it’s a mural at a Transitway station or a sculpture along the sidewalk, public art has become part of the fabric of this city - inspiring residents and visitors alike.”

Find out more about the City’s Public Art Policy and process. Julie Dupont, Coordinator Cultural Public Arts, will tag team with artist Tim desClouds, creator of several public art pieces, including ‘Celebration of Community’ in Greely Village Park. Together they will share their insights and examples of how ‘public art’ comes about.

May 2, 2018: Pam Thompson
Pam Thompson, docent with the National Gallery of Canada, and resident of nearby Stonebridge, will give a presentation on the 150th Anniversary Exhibit, “Our Masterpieces, Our Stories”, at the National Gallery.

This completely new exhibit space ‘offers an unprecedented panorama of the art of our country’. Commencing with the Indigenous Gallery, Pam will highlight early Canadian artists, the founding of the National Gallery, Group of 7, Contemporary Art and more.

It’s ‘Canadian Art History 101’ - you won’t want to miss it.
