'Canadian Museum For Human Rights' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

 

The Canadian Museum For Human Rights finally opened to the public today on September 20, 2014!

 

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an architectural wonder designed by American architect Antoine Predock. He was inspired by Canadian landscapes such as the vast prairie skies, northern lights, snow and ice, as well as Canadian cultures, including Indigenous cultures. The form of the building was also influenced by images of icebergs, tree roots and out-stretched wings. This national and international destination was established to explore the issue of human rights, focusing on the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. The Museum was built in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the first such national museum to be built outside the National Capital Region in nearly half a century. A Canadian postage stamp was issued to commemorate the opening of the Museum in September of 2014.

 

PS: I was fortunate to be commissioned to produce the 'two' images on the postage stamp, including the images for the First Day Issue Envelope and the stamp Booklet.
