SEARCHING FOR TOM | Tom Thomson: Man, Myth, and Masterworks

Winter 2010

SEARCHING FOR TOM will lead visitors through Thomson’s life and mysterious death, his influence on Canadian art and how contemporary artists are now interpreting his landscapes.

Thomson ultimately changed and defined the way Canadians view our nation, which has resulted in numerous interpretations through multimedia art. THEMUSEUM hopes to bring awareness of Thomson to new generations and new Canadians as we all continue to search for Tom.

This exhibition will include:
