CulturePass is your window into the artistic and cultural richness of the greater international Passamaquoddy region including Cobscook and Passamaquoddy Bays and the St. Croix River.
The “Get to Know Saint John Walking Tour Series” presented by the New Brunswick Museum will take place every Thursday evening of the summer at 6pm and every Saturday morning at 11:30am.
On the afternoon of June 20, 1877 over 1,600 structures in Uptown Saint John were destroyed by what would come to be known as “The Great Fire”. This walking tour will explore structures that survived the blaze, some that were built after it, and how the event has shaped the city as it exists today.
This exhibition is an invitational show of those artists who have been with us over the last two years as visiting residents. We look for artists who appreciate the link between our environment and the statements they are trying to express through their art. Mediums vary widely, from printmaking to fibres and textiles to painting to 3D installations.
