The Revelstoke Museum & Archives welcomes you to the opening of its unique new exhibit “MOSAIC – Revelstoke’s Multicultural Heritage,” on Wednesday, July 31 at 2 p.m. The exhibit explores Revelstoke’s pioneer cultural communities:  British, Ukrainian, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Scandinavian. These and other cultures have contributed to the mosaic that makes up our community and have created a vibrant Revelstoke history. MOSAIC also includes a children’s activity area funded by the Revelstoke Community Foundation.

The Museum would like to acknowledge the funders who made the exhibit possible: the BC Gaming Branch of the Province of British Columbia who issued a multicultural grant, the Columbia Basin Trust, the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.

Visitors will also view our recent main floor renovations, including new linoleum flooring, lighting, painted ceiling tiles and fresh paint. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia for these renovations.

These renovations are the beginning of a long-range exhibit planning process. The museum is working with museum consultant Cuyler Page to develop an exhibit plan for permanent and short-term exhibit spaces within the main gallery. The multicultural exhibit opening allows visitors a chance to see and discuss concepts for ongoing exhibit design.

Become a part of our MOSAIC as you learn about Revelstoke’s cultural history, and contribute to our shared experience.

For more information, contact Cathy English, curator at curator@revelstokemuseum.ca.
