Civic Modern: Winnipeg's Civic and Centennial Centre - An Architectural ExplorationJanuary 16th, 2015 - February 11th, 2015
On view from January 16 to February 11, 2015 in the ARCH 2 Gallery at the University of Manitoba, Civic Modern examines the social, political and architectural history of Winnipeg's Civic and Centennial Centres as they reach their 50th anniversary. In 1957, Winnipeggers voted by a wide margin for a new City Hall. Less than 10 years later, the city witnessed the construction of not only a new City Hall, but a massive complex of civic and cultural facilities, one of the largest such ensembles in Canada. The exhibit includes original sketches, artifacts, and photos from noted architectural photographer Henry Kalen.
The exhibition is curated by Jeffrey Thorsteinson of the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, with financial support from the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Architecture.
The gallery is open Monday to from Friday 9:00am to 4:30pm.
