Do you plan on visiting "Curious," the Royal B.C. Museum exhibition at the Wing Sang gallery this summer? It looks like a fascinating and beautiful exhibtion!
Possibly the most anticipated part of this exhibition is "Intimate Glimpses" which features paintings, documents and artifacts from the life of Emily Carr. The rest of the exhibition looks fascinating too though- "Bottled Beauty" features items from their wet collection (literally- pickled specimens!) and you can play a game of "Artifact/Artifiction-" the curators have provided true or false statements about the artifacts, and you get to guess!
I'm excited to see the "Magic Lantern" section of the exhibition. We have a number of magic lantern slides in the Chung Collection as well, primarily examples that were used by the CPR to promote tourism along their railway and ship lines. The examples from the RBCM look beautiful, and all depict scenes throughout British Columbia.
When I last reported about the Wing Sang gallery at the Rennie building, tours were free but required pre-regisistration. For this summer, you can visit any time during opening hours (daily from 10 am - 6 pm) but there is an admittance fee of $11 (or $33 per family, children under 5 free, free for RBCM members). Find all the visitor information you need here. The exhibition opened on June 14, and is there until Sept. 3.
