Arctic Chill at the Winnipeg Art Gallery
While winter might be winding down in some places, it's just hitting it's stride here in the Canadian Prairies. Winnipeg just recently became an official "World Winter CIty". Yeah, I guess so! Winter is quite beautiful here, and over the years I've noticed an increased effort to celebrate it. I fully support that attitude, which is why this weekend we spent an afternoon at the Winnipeg Art Gallery participating in their Arctic Chill Out family event. The kids made deep tunnels in the snow on the rooftop, visited some husky dogs, ate their fair share of bannock and saw how iglu's are made. Afterward we warmed up by enjoying Our Land : Contemporary Art from the Arctic. Here are a few images from our day.
I'm not a fan of art galleries and kids. It's such a nice idea, and I wish it worked, but for us it's not very fun. Read here about what us at the MOMA in NYC and you'll get my totally honest review. Personally, I really enjoy art galleries though, and this time was no exception. The Thinker is visiting the WAG, a special treat. If you are visiting Winnipeg, make sure you visit the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Here are just a few photos (I don't think they're allowed ... eep!)
