Museum of Vancouver presents Vancouver in the Seventies

Thu, Oct 13 - Sun, Feb 26

Museum of Vancouver, 1100 Chestnut St, Vancouver, BC V6J 3J9, Canada map

Vancouver in the Seventies zooms in on key themes and moments from Vancouver’s coming of age: a time of protest, political upheaval, economic prosperity, and cultural blossoming. The exhibition will feature photographic gems from the Vancouver Sun collection and will include complementary objects from the Museum’s collection. The exhibition is based on the book Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos from a Decade that Changed the City (Greystone Books, to be released in October 2016), authored by retired Vancouver Sun research librarian Kate Bird and columnist Shelley Fralic.
