A Glenbow Double Bill!



    A New Exhibit and a 17th Century Painting Unveiled

    CALGARY, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Glenbow invites media to a special event
showcasing spectacular art! First, at 10 a.m. experience one of the museum's
most powerful exhibitions yet. Honouring Tradition: Reframing Native Art is a
history-making exhibit, marking the first time Glenbow has shown traditional
and contemporary Native art, side-by-side, on such a large scale.
    At 10:30 a.m. it will be love at first sight when a glorious Studio of
Rubens painting titled, The Fruit Dance (c.1616 -1617) is unveiled. The work
is on long-term loan to Glenbow from a generous Canadian collector. Glenbow is
holding a public unveiling later Thursday evening. Hurry in to feast your eyes
on this beauty!

    (*)Studio of Rubens painting will be presented both partially veiled and
    unveiled for media. We ask media to wait until after 5 p.m. to show the
    unveiled work. The veiled photo may be used as a teaser up until then.
    These photos will be posted on our ftp site - see details below.
