Luke Marston's "Bentwood Box"
Coast Salish artist Luke Marston’s carved bentwood box received offerings at hearings by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg has a new exhibit about the work of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
It includes Coast Salish artist Luke Marston’s carved bentwood box, which received offerings at recent hearings across Canada.
The exhibit will explain the commission’s role in drawing attention to abuse at residential schools and promoting healing.
The museum has also opened a temporary exhibition space that will show the Magna Carta, on loan from Durham Cathedral in Britain, until Sept. 18.
Magna Carta – Law, Liberty and Legacy celebrates the 800th anniversary of the document that set the groundwork for concepts that continue to define democracy, including the principle that no one is above the law.
The Magna Carta will also be shown at the Legislative Assembly of Alberta Visitor Centre from Nov. 23 to Dec. 29.
