Brock University has received $90,000 from the federal Ministry of Canadian Heritage’s 1812 Commemoration Fund to create a War of 1812 exhibit at the St. Catharines Museum.
The exhibit will run from late summer 2013 to December 2014 and will include historical arts and artifacts, interactive elements, hands-on interpretive displays and guides to bring the story to life and assist visitors in their understanding of the significance of the war. In addition to chronicling the 1812 conflict in general, the exhibit will look to define the area of St. Catharines within the context of the war.
The funding was announced today by Rick Dykstra, MP for St. Catharines, on behalf of the Hon. James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
