    Saturday March 07, 2015 - 10:00 am — TheMuseum - Kitchener
    Come experience the world as it was millions of years ago. Dinosaurs | The Edge of Extinction uncovers a century of research about both Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex – two of the most well-known dinosaurs – and how they lived until the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction. It will reveal the interdependence between the species, their environment, and the forces that shaped both their life and extinction. Through new, technology-based interactive stations you will get to see the world through the eyes of different dinosaurs, learn how a Pterosaur flies, and walk among these giants. Meet THEMUSEUM’s dinosaur family and interact with an infant Triceratops and T-Rex, and have your bravery tested when you take part in a newly developed program that allows you to come face to face with a walking, roaring dinosaur.

    Saturday March 07, 2015 - 10:00 am — TheMuseum - Kitchener
    The Canadian Council Art Bank has been collecting work by the best Canadian artists of our time for over forty years, becoming the world's largest collection of contemporary Canadian art. The Art Bank shares its collection through art rental and outreach programs which sees approximately 3,000 works on display at various locations each year. But rarely are the works that depict subjects who are naked, nude, or unclothed exhibited, pieces which make up a large percentage of the collection. THEMUSEUM is displaying almost a hundred of these works that range in date, media, subject and styles. The exhibit encourages the audience to explore themes that will differentiate the pieces from those conventionally considered objectifying, pornographic or controversial. It is designed to educate, entertain and give viewers an engaging experience to explore contemporary Canadian art that the country has been so reluctant to publicly display. These unique works will challenge perceptions, create discussion and ultimately determine: do you GET Naked?
