Family Day outing

The Art Gallery of Alberta is free admission on Family Day... which gives me the incentive to finally visit the building for the first time since its re-opening several years ago. Today it is full of people, including our two kids, making it difficult to really appreciate the artwork at a leisurely pace, but the kids enjoyed the children's activities in the lobby while I sketched away.

Meanwhile just outside on Churchill Square, the Metropolis winter festival continues under the brilliant sunny blue sky. The temporary pavilions are huge structures framed with scaffolding and shrink-wrapped in white plastic, creating a wonderful event setup befitting the snowy landscape.
