Edinburgh Square Hosting Special ‘Art Of War’ Presentation, P.A Day Program, Photography Exhibition & More This November

From photography exhibitions and guest speakers to special children’s and family programming, there’s something for everyone at Caledonia’s Edinburgh Square Heritage & Cultural Centre this November.

Guest Lecture: ‘The Art of War’ with Ryan Graham – November 9 (2pm)
Join guest lecturer Ryan Graham for a special presentation titled ‘The Art of War’. Art is a reflection of the society that creates it, so what kind of art is produced when that society goes to war? ‘The Art of War’ discusses two artistic interpretations on the subject. The first, the ancient Romans who embraced war through their creative expression of state propaganda, and the second, a radical group of artists rebelling against art itself during WWI. Pre-registration is required for this program; the cost is $5/person. Code: 10387.

P.A. Day Program: ‘Jingle All The Way’ – November 15 (9am to 4pm)
‘Jingle All The Way’ is an entertaining full-day program for kids 5 to 10 years old. Kids will spend the day with Edinburgh Square’s elves and enjoy festive crafts/activities, including: making a snowman buddy, decorating cookies, singing songs and designing special tree ornaments for Light-Up Night. Pre-registration is required for this program; the cost is $26.25 per child. Code: 10381.
