New exhibition! Dreams and Schemes: Building the Welland Canals

September 28 2017 to January 27 2018

The opening of the Welland Ship Canal in 1932 represented the culmination of more than one hundred years of construction of increasingly complex technical and engineering marvels. This exhibition allows visitors to experience the history of canal-building in Niagara as captured by artists working in printmaking, painting, and photography.
