Volunteers are busy installing a completely new exhibit with funding from BC Arts Council -Refuge Cove: Moving with the Tide, curated by Judith Williams & due to open in June. Thanks to funding from BC Museums Assoc., Heritage BC & Canada 150, Laurel Bohart & Lynne Jordan are re-creating Wild Cortes-Woods, Wetlands & Waters as a Museum satellite exhibit at Linnaea Education Centre, opening this summer. Besides Linnaea Farm, partners joining Cortes Museum to create this ecological hub for Cortes include FOCI, Children's Forest Trust, Sabina Leader-Mense, Christian Gronau, Rex Weyler & other local biologists.
Museum programmer Brittany Baxter is co-ordinating with Klahoose a Canada 150 grant project Where do you come from? It will include creating art, song & dance, an artistic film, & a community quilt, all culminating with a lively community event in July. Watch for future notices about all these exciting happenings & events on local bulletin boards, Museum website & Tideline.
Due to such a busy schedule for our Museum volunteers, we have opted to postpone the Creative Spaces tour to 2018. Cortes Museum very much appreciates those gardeners & artists who offered their Creative Spaces for this year. We hope you will join us next year.
Volunteers don't get paid -- because they're priceless!
All freshly painted!
