The exhibition of Premiere: New acquisitions at LAC at 395 Wellington St. in Ottawa will unfortunately be closed early this fall. The intense humidity this summer resulted in the need to shut down early to preserve precious items from the collection that could have been damaged from longer term exposure. Between April and September 2018, several thousand visitors had an opportunity to view some of LAC’s new and eclectic collection pieces, such as the manuscript of a play written by celebrated writer Jane Urquhart when she was a child, a design for a never-produced prototype of the ill-fated Avro Arrow airplane, and a book from the 1700s dealing with a mysterious (at the time) illness now thought to have been a form of syphilis.
Stay tuned for more news on LAC’s future events and exhibitions.
