Canadian art, eh?

If you think Canadian culture begins and ends with the MacKenzie Brothers, think again, hoser. Visual arts chair Madeline Lennon is here to set you straight.

Today at 4 p.m. in Rm. 100 of the John Labatt Visual Arts Centre, Lennon will talk about Canadian culture with a look at Canadian art and artists. Lennon will focus on the weight given to the notion of land in Canadian art by looking not only at landscape but other ways the land comes into art, she said.

The cultural differences between regions in Canada will be another focus of the talk as Lennon will be showing slides of work from across Canada.
