A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for August 1st is Black.
Emerging from the area where the temporary exhibits are housed, I photographed this view of the Grand Hall inside the Museum of History. Pacific Coast totem poles and other items are down there.
Above is my favourite work of art in the national capital region, Morning Star, the mural by Dene artist Alex Janvier. It is a massive abstract and colourful mural that occupies one of the domes on the ceiling.
Another work of art in this area is the plaster version of Spirit Of Haida Gwaii, by the Haida artist Bill Reid. Other versions of this are at the Canadian embassy in Washington and at the airport in Vancouver.
The Grand Hall is a wonder to see in person with its collection of totem poles and house facades of coastal tribes.
