We visited the museum on a bit of a drizzly morning - great timing for some indoor activity. We started out with the Emily Carr exhibit. I had never particularly liked her work in my younger years, but between being nostalgic for all things Canadian (moved away 8 years ago) and broadening my horizons, i did actually appreciate the exhibit. Plus it was informative - I learned quite a bit that I'd never bothered to find out about her in the past.
We continued on to the William Kurelek exhibit - which was quite huge, actually. I'd never heard of him before, but his art really struck me at an emotial level and I'm so glad we had the opportunity to learn about this artist.
There was also an exhibit of late Imperial Chinese textiles, which was also quite interesting. We wandered over to the Spencer house part of the museum and took a peek out in the Japanese garden.
It's not right down town, and requires a bit of perserverence to find, but well worth the trip - especially if the weather isn't perfect for outdoor activities.
