I wanted to show what's happening at the National War Memorial and the National Arts Centre at the moment. The Memorial is walled off at present, with refurbishment work going on, including scaffolding around the Memorial itself for cleaning of the statues. The work is due to be done in early November in time for Remembrance Day.
The NAC itself, across from the Memorial, remains open for performances (with entrances on the far side of the building). On the west side, however, serious work is going on. A glass structure is to be added onto this side, off setting some of the 1960s architecture. This project is set to be finished next year before Canada Day, and I am tracking its progress on occasion. Check out the first post from when things were just getting started.
This is typical of what can be found on the temporary walls surrounding the two sites, posters for an exhibit going on at present at the National Gallery.
Also around here are art renderings of what the enclosure will look like.
The sculpture of Oscar Peterson remains unaffected, likely to remain outside the enclosed space.
I liked the look of the sunlight on this staircase further away from the construction work.
And this ad is for the fall season's opening gala for the NAC Orchestra, which will feature the jazz musician Diana Krall among the evening's festivities.
