James Wilson Morrice
James Wilson Morrice was a pioneer artist who played a vital role in advancing modern artistic trends in Canada and abroad at the turn of the 20th century. As an expatriate in Paris, Morrice became the first Canadian artist to archive an international reputation.
Participate in this scavenger-like activity travel activity in the exhibition " James Wilson Morrice: The A.K. Prakash Collection in Trust to the Nation" and wander through the artist’s timeless recollection of landscapes and atmospheres to search for clues. Bon voyage!
AGA volunteers will be facilitating the activity in the second floor gallery for Alberta Culture Days.
