Oooo, Mary! I LOVE Ottawa!! What an amazing art museum - now I've gotta go there!!Many years ago when I was in high school, our Canadian History class took a field trip to Ottawa and went to the Parliment building - we even met Pierre Trudeau! We didn't go to the art museum, though - we obviously missed a treasure!Thanks for sharing your pictures and spreading the word!Cindy
Cindy,So cool that you have been to Ottawa and met Trudeau. I am not sure this version of the National Gallery (openned in 1988) had been built at that time which is why you probably missed it. Interestingly it was Trudeau who set aside the funds to build the museum. It is certainly wonderful. And what a great collection of art they have. There are so many Canadian artists that I enjoy that it is always a pleasure to go there. Thanks so much for writing in.
