LIGHT IN THE LAND: THE NATURE OF CANADA
Canadian Museum of Nature
240, rue McLeod, Ottawa, (Ontario), K2P 2R1
In this photography exhibition discover the fusion of art and science as captured through the lens of Canadian astronaut, Dr. Roberta Bondar. Created to mark the 25th anniversary of the astronaut and photographer’s space mission, the exhibition captures that critical moment of inspiration: “My view from the spacecraft Discovery 25 years ago forever changed my view of Earth, and it was on that flight that I committed to protect this magnificent planet.” Reflecting a fusion of artistic and scientific vision informed by her unique expertise as a professional photographer, researcher, astronaut, medical doctor and neurologist, the exhibition explores varied aspects of the distinctive and significant landscape that is Canada. These iconic images inspire us to explore our country to seek our identity as Canadians. Come see the exhibition in the museum's rotunda.
