WHAT’S ON

Terry Fox – Running to the Heart of Canada

TERRY FOX – RUNNING TO THE HEART OF CANADA

Terry Fox – Running to the Heart of Canada provides a look at Terry’s epic 143 day, 5,373 kilometer journey from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Thunder Bay, Ontario. It explores Canadians’ deep and abiding affection for Terry and examines his unique place in our collective memory. Developed in partnership with the AGB and Terry Fox’s family, the exhibition begins with the impact of Terry Fox on modern Canadian life – the numerous schools, community centers, and features of the landscape named after him, the Canadian coins, stamps, and passports bearing his image. The question posed, “Who was Terry Fox?” The rest of the exhibition is the answer.

The Terry Fox – Running to the Heart of Canada exhibition is organized by the Candian Museum of History in partnership with the Terry Fox Centre.

In December 1751, a ship from the Dutch East India Company left Canton, China, with more than 230,000 pieces of porcelain, textiles and tea for the European market. Less than a month later, the ship sank. Over two hundred years later, Michael Hatcher and his team recovered more than 150,000 pieces of porcelain that became known as the Nanking Cargo. The porcelain was sold in 2,800 lots in a record breaking sale at Christie’s Amsterdam.  The Art Gallery of Burlington is fortunate to own 240 pieces and will be exhibited from the first time in June 2017.
