Celebrate Alberta Culture Days at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre. Starting in the early 1900s, people came from eastern and western Europe, the United States, and other parts of Canada to make a living in the coal mining valley of the Crowsnest Pass. They brought cultural traditions with them that have made the area a hotbed of artistic and musical creativity. Culture Days showcases the vibrant culture of the Crowsnest Pass amid the breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. At the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, view the art exhibit, A Slow Light. In 2015, Canmore-based artist, Tyler Los-Jones, began his investigation of the Crowsnest Pass during a residency program organized by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery at the Gushul Studio in Blairmore. He recalls encountering the region’s stories in the way one encounters bands of strata, there are those that are large and obvious that you can determine at a distance and those that are more contorted that you need to experience up close. The layered geological and economic narratives within the region became the basis for the photographs and sculpture in this exhibition. Other events: Harvest of Memories Gala and Auction, fundraiser for the Crowsnest Museum; M is for Music on Sunday at Crowsnest Pass Public Art Gallery (a musical talent recital).
