    Forty years ago, Pat Bruderer, known as Halfmoon Woman, met the late Angelique Merasty, a world-renowned birchbark biting artist, while working at a friendship centre in Thompson.

  • Shining ever-loving lights on the exchange

    If Winnipeg’s bustling Exchange District seems brighter as of late, there’s no need to get your prescription checked. An exploratory exhibition combining light and art installations in a novel way recently arrived on its famed streets.

  • Signs of the times

    Like most cities, Winnipeg’s buildings tell a story about its past. Well, maybe it’s not a single story with a clearly defined arc.

They range from the old and beautifully preserved to the rundown and decrepit, from quaint character neighbourhoods to rows of identical strip malls, like so many cubes of Lego, devoid of any personality whatsoever.
