Making Waves exhibition opening

August 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Kootenay Lake has long been a hub of activity, from the earliest sturgeon-nosed canoes to modern day sporting activities such as paddleboarding and kitesurfing. Through artifacts, photographs, and archival film from the Museum collection, Making Waves examines the diverse nature of this history and the role that the West Arm has in the community today. 

See the gold medal uniform of Olympic rowing champion Lorne Loomer; study trophies won by the famous Ladybird speedboat; watch a recently uncovered Shaw 10 tape discussing the origins of the Nelson Rowing Club; and much more. 

Making Waves runs August 19 to October 28, with a FREE opening reception on Friday, August 18 from 7-9 pm.
