blogcutter and I went to the National Art gallery and managed to see three exhibitions.
The Jack Bush one http://www.gallery.ca/en/see/exhibitions/current/details/jack-bush-8058 was major. It was amusing to see his commercial art used on an old Chatelaine magazine, a comic book about a kids visit to the hospital and three Molson beer ads.

We also took in the Escher exhibit http://www.gallery.ca/en/see/exhibitions/current/details/m-c-escher-the-mathemagician-8228 Most of the major pieces here were ones I have already seen but it was nice to see the progression from the simple more realistic pieces to the crazy highly mathematical pieces. This exhibit is a must see.

The Janet Cardiff "40 part motet" is back. http://www.gallery.ca/en/see/exhibitions/current/details/janet-cardiff-forty-part-motet-6857 I loved this piece the first time and we got to see and hear it one more time. I'm still amused I did not know the "Spem Alium" was popular because of "Fifty shades of grey".

Finally we walked up to the Saudi Arabia embassy and helped in the protest of the flogging of Raif Badawi. https://www.flickr.com/photos/cfi_ottawa/sets/72157650249147616/
