The Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum is pleased to announce the launch of the exhibition Group 6: The Canadian Forces Artists Program, 2012-2013.

November 8, 2015, to January 31, 2016

 

Organized in collaboration with the Department of National Defence, the exhibition presents a selection of works produced by artists of the Canadian Forces Artists Program.

 

Working across a variety of media, the artists in Group 6 bring a unique perspective to the history, contributions and interactions of the men and women in the Canadian Forces in 2012-2013. The art serves to document the work undertaken by the Canadian Forces in Canada and abroad, and to provide a unique perspective from creative and independent viewpoints.
