“The most important thing a painter can do is find a good place to sit.”
- J.E.H. MacDonald
TAKE YOUR SEAT WITH THE GROUP OF SEVEN
We invite you to experience the photographic journey of our director’s chair to Lake Superior’s North Shore.
The very nature that inspired The Group of Seven’s excursions to the region between 1921 and 1928, now inspires us. As a symbol of our ability to choose, TAKE YOUR SEAT’s director's chair invites you to wander alongside Canada’s most famous painters while reminding us that we each play a part to ensure their muse inspires generations to come.
Presented by Brookfield Place, with thanks to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
‘A picture can become for us a highway between a particular thing and a universal feeling.’
