Have you been to the Bruce Museum lately? The current exhibits featuring Fossils and Big Cats are well worth a visit with the whole family!
Travel back in time to a lake that vanished 50 million years ago. The Secrets of Fossil Lake exhibition brings together a remarkable assemblage of fossils that capture an ancient ecosystem from a time when Wyoming was covered in subtropical forests. Encounter ferocious predatory fish, delicate feathered birds, and tiny primitive horses, all preserved in astonishingly beautiful fossils.
Hermès, the Parisian luxury house, and Panthera, the global wild cat conservation organization, have joined forces as leaders in their fields to mount this first ever major exhibition of the works of the master French animal painter Robert Dallet on the tenth anniversary of his death. The Big Cats exhibition is a celebration of the beauty and allure of big cats and a call to protect their wild populations for generations to come. The paintings have been selected from Hermès’ own collection and from that of Dallet’s son, Frederic. The show will feature approximately 60 of the artist’s paintings, drawings, and sketches, illustrating the eight big cat species: tiger, lion, leopard, cheetah, cougar, jaguar, snow leopard and clouded leopard. The exhibition will launch at the Bruce Museum and is scheduled for an international tour throughout Europe and Asia in 2016 – 2017.
On your way out, check out the museum’s gift shop for great gifts and fun projects for the kids including rock collecting!
