Nature or Nurture:

Is Your Profession In Your Blood?

This exhibit will explore the early influences that helped shape the future careers of some of our cultural icons. What music did R&B singer Divine Brown grow up listening to? What art was Michael Snow exposed to as a child? Which ballet pieces mesmerized Karen Kain as a budding dancer? How did George Stroumboulopoulos develop a catholic knowledge of Canadian arts and culture? This exhibit invites the visitor to think about the role your upbringing had in developing who you are today.
