Landscape, Nature, and History: Exploring Cootes Paradise Marsh Through Art

2 to 3 p.m.; RBG Centre

Cootes Paradise Marsh has been portrayed by artists in many ways since Elizabeth Simcoe made the first known painting of the area in 1796. More than decorative art, the paintings of Cootes Paradise made by subsequent generations are valuable historical documents showing us changes in the landscape. Artists today continue to interpret the area in many media, from paintings and photographs to sculpture and literature. Join Dr. David A. Galbraith and look back through time to find how landscapes have changed or no longer exist, and consider how art and nature intersect at RBG’s largest nature sanctuary.

$12 (RBG Members 10% off) Pre-registration required.
