Last chance to visit two exhibitions at the Canadian Museum of Civilization


Gatineau, Quebec, March 10, 2009 — Two exhibitions that take visitors on a journey through two fascinating worlds will soon draw to a close at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. There are only a few days left to travel through 400 years of Quebec’s creativity in Heart and Soul: Quebec Folk Art and to visit Japan and Nature: Spirits of the Seasons, an exhibition that takes young visitors to the Land of the Rising Sun.


Heart and Soul: Quebec Folk Art
Presented until March 22, Heart and Soul is one of the most comprehensive collections of Quebec folk art ever assembled. The exhibition brings together 400 works — sculptures, paintings, textiles and more — that demonstrate the talent of folk artists, past and present. There are antique and contemporary pieces, traditional and non-conformist works. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover a fascinating, but little-known art form.


Japan and Nature: Spirits of the Seasons
At the Canadian Children’s Museum, located inside the Museum of Civilization, families have until March 29 to see Japan and Nature. Aimed at children ages 4 to 12, the exhibition uses a host of fun-filled activities and interactive zones to show how children in Japan celebrate nature in their everyday lives, and how nature is reflected through Japanese stories, art, seasonal activities and celebrations.
