Exhibition

SPARK Photo Festival presents SPARK Showcase Exhibit

Date:Saturday, April 1 - Sunday, April 30, 2017
Location:    Peterborough Public Library (360 George St N, Unit 90, Peterborough)
2017 will be a time to remember another occasion of national pride and nation building, the 100th anniversary of significant World War 1 battles, most notably those at Vimy Ridge (9-12 April 1917) and Passchendaele. While Canadian leadership and tenacity played a key role right through to the 11 November 1918 armistice and beyond, it was success at Vimy in 1917 that marked a coming-of-age in terms both of Canadian self-awareness and the respect it earned from others. The exhibit draws heavily on materials of the Peterborough Museum and Archives (PMA), especially the Balsillie Collection of Roy Studio Images. This year again, SPARK is pleased to be using historical images and supporting the digitization of archival materials, helping to preserve Peterborough’s past and making it more accessible. Exhibit curated by the SPARK Showcase Exhibit Committee. Opening reception April 9th, 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Check SPARK website for hours of operation for exhibition.
