Please plan to join Laurie Swim at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic for the official installation of her four-year project, Hope and Survival. The community-built quilt project marks the path of tragedy and rebuilding after Halifax experienced the largest manmade explosion prior to Hiroshima. The installation is part of the MMA's special exhibits commemorating the 100th anniversary of the explosion.
Where: Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax
When: Thursday June 15, 2-4pm. Opening remarks at 2:20pm.
"This community art project involved hundreds of volunteers in beading the Braille for The Scroll of Remembrance that accompanies the centrepiece that I created over the past four years. Hope and Survival is a memorial to those lost in the Halifax Explosion a hundred years ago and a gift to the people of Nova Scotia."
