Surrey, BC – The Museum of Surrey invites residents and visitors to embark on an educational journey to build and connect this fall. Upcoming exhibits open on October 17, 2023, and include an exhibit of LEGO® bricks creations “Everything is Still Awesome” and #HOPEANDHEALINGCANADA by Tracey-Mae Chambers.
“Everything is Still Awesome” is an exhibit of LEGO® creations presented by VLC (Vancouver Community for Adult Fans of LEGO®) will be the feature exhibit from October 17, 2023 to March 31, 2024. Visitors can connect with the past and present of LEGO® through the exhibit theme “Nostalgia” and learn about the Museum of Surrey’s history showcasing 20 years of VLC exhibits. The exhibit will also address the nostalgia of how LEGO® bricks and kits have changed in the past 40 years to connect different generations of LEGO® fans. Included in the exhibit is a timeline display with actual LEGO® builds.
#HOPEANDHEALINGCANADA by Métis installation artist Tracey-Mae Chambers is a new exhibition that will be held in the museum’s Indigenous Hall from October 17 to December 23, 2023. The exhibit aims to initiate conversations about decolonization, hope, and healing. Through her art, Tracey Mae invites visitors to explore and reflect on the path towards reconciliation.
“At Museum of Surrey we are proud to offer these two exhibitions opening Fall. One is a fun and creative look at our world using LEGO® while the other is a serious conversation about how we can make our society a better place through healing,” said Lynn Saffery, Museum Manager. “Both exhibits provide a unique and engaging way to explore different aspects of human culture and creativity.”
In addition to the exhibits, the Museum of Surrey will also offer a range of programming and fall events, including BOO-seum, Sensory Trick or Treat, Cloverdale Christmas Tree Festival Kickoff and much more.
