A few days remaining to discover Bob Boyer and his life’s work


For immediate release

Gatineau, Quebec, October, 30, 2012 — Visit the exhibition Bob Boyer – His Life’s Work at the Canadian Museum of Civilization before it closes on November 12.

The exhibition has been extended to allow visitors to discover this influential Métis artist, whose entire life was devoted to advocating the contributions of First Peoples to the cultural and social life of Canada.

Bob Boyer – His Life’s Work is the first large-scale exhibition devoted to the artist. Featuring 58 works of art produced between 1968 and 2004, the exhibition takes a fresh look at Boyer’s exploration of traditional motifs, which he used to reveal important aspects of contemporary Aboriginal life.

The exhibition is organized by the MacKenzie Art Gallery in collaboration with the Canadian Museum of Civilization and made possible in part through a contribution from the Museums Assistance Program, Department of Canadian Heritage. Bob Boyer – His Life’s Work closes on Monday, November 12, 2012.
