Where Art and Historic Places Meet

I love visual art. I always have. I find it inspiring and soothing and fun all at the same time. Luckily for me, many historic places feature art galleries or spaces where people can share their art with the community. I used to work for an art gallery that was housed in a historic home, so the combination holds a special place in my heart.

As you can see in the above image, I have taken a virtual selfie at Emily Carr’s childhood home with myself as a child. If only I could have met her in person. At least I can still continue to appreciate her art and find ways to connect with her at her childhood home.
