The City of Vancouver owned Vancouver Civic Theatres will partner with the Vancouver Maritime Museum for a free family day event to coincide with the presentation of Into the Arctic, an art and film exhibition that takes viewers to the water’s edge of the icy Canadian North.
Free Family Day Event to Celebrate the Canadian Arctic
Where: Queen Elizabeth Theatre Lobby (650 Hamilton St, Vancouver)
When: Monday February 12, 2018 11:00am to 2:00pm, drop-in
The afternoon will include guided gallery tours by Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Parks Canada arctic outreach team, educating the attendees about the arctic’s unique ecosystems and geography.
There will be two craft stations so the entire family can roll up their sleeves and get creative. Finally, parents and children alike can sit back, relax and enjoy a cup of free hot chocolate while listening to arctic inspired live music.
Artist Cory Trépanier traveled, hiked, explored, and painted the arctic over a 10 year span. The result is a series of more than 50 powerful paintings capturing the most remote and wild corners of the Canadian North. This January, Into the Arctic will be displayed as a shared exhibition between the Vancouver Maritime Museum and at the Vancouver Civic Theatre’s operated Queen Elizabeth Theatre, where a gallery space has been created in its grand, 3-storied lobby.
Into the Arctic will be on display at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre until March 25th, and will be viewable during scheduled, ticketed events.
