September 11 – November 18, 2018: SOUTERRAIN IMPRESSIONS EXHIBIT: FIRST WORLD WAR CARVINGS COME OUT OF THE DARKNESS AND INTO THE LIGHT
The community is invited for a once in a lifetime opportunity to view carvings and images created by Canadian soldiers in caves near Vimy Ridge France during the First World War. The caves in which the carvings were found are not open to the public. The carvings were made while Canadian soldiers waited to move to the forward trenches before the historic Battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917. The latest technology in 3D laser scanning and high resolution photography made it possible to bring these carvings home as a very up close and personal reminder of the impact made by Canadian soldiers during the war.
