Vanguard @ NS Museum
Earlier this week I was at a meeting with Nova Scotia Museum staff. The much-anticipated exhibit on a selection of about three dozen women and men of Nova Scotia since Confederation — entitled “Vanguard: 150 Years of Remarkable Nova Scotians” —will open to the public on June 28. It will run until mid-to-late October.
Martin Hubley has located some terrific objects that relate to the people being highlighted, and some wonderful images. The exhibit design looks great, and the Museum has engaged artist Miro Davis to come up with an installation that will be in the space adjacent to the exhibit itself. Her installation will feature poignant lighting effects, a soundtrack and other elements.
I am delighted to have contributed research and words to the exhibit, and am looking forward to seeing the display come together for everyone to enjoy.
