Ottawa: During Construction Even the Shroud is Artful

The Great Hall of the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa is undergoing window replacement. At the start of the project the entire structure was covered by an iceberg! Watch the installation here. Fortunately for us, who had not been to Ottawa since last spring's tulip extravaganza, the project is running longer than anticipated.

Louise Bourgeois' Maman welcome most visitors to the museum, although my commenter from Ottawa mentions that some arachnophobes choose another entrance. I understand.


  1. Splendid shot!

    That spider's been there a few years. There are arachnophobics who still refuse to use the nearby main entrance because of it.
