Exploring the Art and Geology of Banff

Thursday, August 5, 2021

Guests will be guided on an easy walk on paved pathways from the Whyte Museum to Bow Falls and back. The walk will include one flight of wooden stairs (with a hand railing) to be descended and climbed. A relaxed pace will be enjoyed with frequent stops for conversations about Canadian art, Canadian art history, and geology. Including a discussion on the fascinating story of the Great Extinction between the Paleozoic and Mesozoic periods. Leaping forward to more recent history, guests will learn about artists such as Walter J Phillips, Margaret Shelton, Peter and Catharine Whyte, William Brymner and F.M. Bell-Smith and their impact on the art history of Canada. Walks run every Thursday between July 8 and September 30, at 9am or 1pm.
