Art Au Travail
Canada Council for the Arts Art Bank = Banque d'oeuvres d'art du Conseil des arts du Canada, 2007 - Art - 143 pages
The Art Bank of the Canada Council for the Arts is one of Canada's greatest treasures, holding more than 18,000 paintings, prints, photographs, and sculptures by over 2,500 contemporary artists. Because the Art Bank rents its works to government and corporate offices, pieces are enjoyed every day in public spaces, but the collection itself is never seen. Now, to mark its 35th anniversary, the Art Bank "exhibits" its collection in Art at Work. In English and French, Art at Work/L'art au Travail celebrates the Art Bank as a uniquely Canadian vision, a major collection, a financial success story, and an inspirtation to governments across Canada and abroad. Introduced by Adrienne Clarkson, the essays by Victoria Henry, David Silcox, Peggy Gale, Pierre Landry, and Jeff Thomas tell about the Art Bank's scope, range, and purpose. Sumptuous photographs make Art at Work a work of art in its own right.
