Art exhibit at Batoche National Historic Site.

The improved visitor reception centre at the Batoche National Historic Site is the home of the new art exhibit Resilience/Resistance: Metis Art 1880-2011. This project was made possible by federal funding of $4.25 million. The art exhibit, curated by internationally renowned Metis artist Sherry Farrell Racette features historical and contemporary works from Metis artists across Canada. "It is important for both the Metis and the Canadian public to become aware of the enduring importance and achievement of Metis artists," said Farrell Racette. "Their works gives visual testimony to the role of love, family, humour and innovation in creating and re-creating a culture founded on the dual power of resilience/resistance."
