Treasures of the Documentary Art Collection at LAC

LAC's documentary art collection is an overlooked and under-appreciated resource. The collection is stored in the Gatineau Preservation Centre. There are occasional touring exhibits, recently items from the Peter Winkworth Collection have been profiled, but only the public taking a tour get the chance to see the entire collection, and usually little more than a glance at a few items.

Thanks to the Friends of LAC you can see a broader selection of the collection through a pdf version of a Kaleidoscope series presentation Treasures of Early Canadian Documentary Art given last October by LAC's Manager of Art and Photography Jim Burant. Check it out through the Friends of LAC website.
