2005: Special Exhibitions Gallery D

Experience this dynamic and colourful exhibition that celebrates Canadian craft and design from the 1960s – featuring furniture, lamps, stereos, pottery and macramé.

Cool '60s Design captures the vibrant, upbeat spirit of this legendary decade. See how craft and design kept pace with dramatic changes such as our first space satellite, the new maple leaf flag and Expo 67 – a high point and a turning point for a proud and optimistic nation. The exhibition shows how Canadians of the 1960s embraced their own individuality, demanding unique and original products designed to match the joyous and creative mood of the time.
