Light in the Land ~ The Nature of Canada
Opens May 25, 2017

Light in the Land ~ the Nature of Canada” is a travelling exhibition of 14 oversized fine art photographs of the Canadian landscape from sea to sea to sea.

The photographic portraits are artistic interpretations of the unique and important landscape that is Canada. The collection is a consistent view of one artist, Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada’s first woman in space, exploring the varied landscape in the singular light that is Canada’s. No other photographer or astronaut who possesses the unique combination of her expertise as a scientist, researcher, medical doctor, neurologist and professional photographer has explored this land with a camera. Her images cultivate a sense of awe, pride, respect and understanding of the natural beauty, biodiversity and sustainability of our nation. Her strength comes from her unique fusion of art and science.

Admission to this exhibit is free for the public you can view it in Science North’s main lobby until June 26.
