This exhibit at the Canadian War Museum explores modern conflict through art.

This exhibit at the Canadian War Museum explores modern conflict through art.

The Canadian War Museum brings viewers one step closer to understanding conflict in Ordinary Canadians in Extraordinary Times. The exhibit presents 14 sculptures of people and scenes, from the First World War to the recent conflict in Afghanistan, highlighting the experience of those involved. The works, which come from the Museums’ Beaverbrook Collection of War Art, are both moving and diverse. The exhibit is part of the Museum’s First World War Centenary Projects.

The exhibition opens on July 30, but the paintings from the museum’s previous exhibit on this theme are still available for viewing.
