WAR Flowers – A Touring Art Exhibition

During the First World War, Canadian soldier George Stephen Cantlie plucked flowers from the fields and gardens of war-torn Europe and sent them home to his baby daughter Celia in Montréal.

One hundred years later, his touching ritual has provided the inspiration for this innovative multi-sensory exhibit.

WAR Flowers examines human nature in wartime through artistic representations that combine Cantlie’s letters and pressed flowers with original scents, crystal sculptures and portraits of 10 Canadians directly involved in the First World War.

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

The exhibition is included in the $10 admission charge to the museum.

To book a group visit of 15 people or more, please contact the museum directly at 416 597-0227 ext. 2 or at info@campbellhousemuseum.ca.

Special guided group tours are available at $4/person (extra to the admission; 15 people minimum). Lunch packages are available. Please request your guided tour and lunch package information at the time of group booking.
