WAR Flowers Long Weekend

Event Start Date:
January 26, 2018
Event End Date:
January 28, 2018
Event Venue:

See WAR Flowers – A Touring Art Exhibition during the extended hours on the first opening weekend.

This multisensory exhibit was inspired by hundred years old letters, written by Canadian soldier George Stephen Cantlie. Pressed between the pages of his letters were flowers, that Cantlie plucked from the fields and gardens of war-torn Europe and sent them home to his wife and baby daughter Celia in Montréal. Each of Cantlie’s century-old, preserved flowers represents a human characteristic, expressed through the Victorian language of flowers – for example, Lavender is “devotion,” Columbine is “Resolve to Win,” Heather is “Solitude.”

WAR Flowers runs from January 24 to March 25, 2018.

During the exhibition, Campbell House Museum will be open Mon-Fri, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, and Sat/Sun, 12 pm to 4:30 pm.
