MORE MUSEUM

     In my last post I showed you the south side of the museum with the murals made from photos of Canadian people.

     Today I'll show the back of the museum and the north side.

     Most back entrances are  neglected and rather unattractive. Not so with this museum. Large squares make the back walls eye catching.








     On the north side they have chosen to cover with local street scenes from the past. 





 


    
 This flag has been seen all over Canada this summer to mark our 150th anniversary.

    1. The museum can now pick up high quality exhibits because of better temperature and humidity control.

  2. You don't almost have to go inside anymore. More to see outside it seems :)

    1. The original design of the museum had squares if cedar so this replaced the cedar.

  5. I recognize that streetscape painting as an Edward Hopper. Interesting idea, to make it look like you're peering in the windows of the gallery!

  6. Very interesting post. We have a Museum but never been in it. Looks small ours and hard to spot it is hidden from the highway.

  7. It's amazing how many flags you see in a city's downtown like that. Must suck to be the person who has to change them for every event

    1. Yes most buildings are pretty dull and boring so this makes things more attractive.

  10. All well that ends well but those "penny wise and pound foolish" people make civic improvement often a struggle...

  15. It's a shame that the money appears to have not achieved what might have been achieved but it certainly has its attractions (shown in both this and the last pist).

  16. It's not often you see a museum which you can peruse from the outside. I never have. I think it's a great idea.

  17. The museum is very good looking with the designs on the outside. You have some nice art works on the inside.

  18. It's smart that someone thought to use the outside as well as the inside to display art. Twice the space for the same price. And also it's appreciated by those who would never bother to go inside.
