NSCAD students make art inspired by Parks Canada places

Since 2012, Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site has collaborated with NSCAD to connect art students to national parks in Nova Scotia. This summer, students enjoyed experiences at Kejimkujik as well as Halifax Citadel and Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Sites, providing inspiration to create art based on this year’s theme, "ghosts."

Starting at 5:30 pm November 30 and running daily from 11am-5pm until December 5th (noon-4pm), NSCAD students will exhibit their work at the Anna Leonowens Gallery located at 1891 Granville St. Halifax. For more information on the exhibit, contact 902-494-8223.
