Tuesday Night at the Museum Presents "Valiants Memorial"

L&A County Museum & Archives, 97 Thomas Street East, Napanee

You are invited to spend a Tuesday Night at the Museum & Archives. This monthly speaker series presents an exciting guest that offers interesting insights into history and the rich culture of our community.

On May 19th, artist Marlene Hilton Moore will lead an engaging and anecdotal presentation about her artistic methods and historical research for the development and installation of the monuments that were unveiled by, The Governor General of Canada, Michaëlle Jean, in 2006. The Valiants Memorial is a monument to 350 years of the evolution of Canada through its military conflicts. The fourteen historical figures of this work were selected by Canadian historians to represent critical moments in our country’s history. These historical figures create a pageantry of history as one circulates amongst them in Confederation Square in Ottawa. The bronze figures, five life-size standing and nine life-size busts, are historically accurate in detail, costume, and portrait.  It is the living presence of each historical figure, achieved through the sensitively sculpted portrait and accuracy of detail that moves beyond fact to create a memorable and evocative work. This presence reminds us that each of these heroes was a distinct human being who dedicated his or her life to faith in our country, its morals, and its principles.

Tickets are $3 per adult, $2.50 for seniors and are available at the door. Find out more by visiting www.CountyMuseum.ca or call the museum at 613-354-3027.
