L.M. Montgomery Virtual Exhibition
"Picturing a Canadian Life: L.M. Montgomery'sTM Personal Scrapbooks and Book Covers" is now on view at http://lmm.confederationcentre.com! Launched August 30, 2002, this free virtual exhibition draws from L.M. Montgomery's scrapbooks and book covers to explore how she used her visual imagination to collect, create and inspire images of Canadian life. The partners include the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN)/The Virtual Museum of Canada (VMC), the National Library of Canada, the University of Guelph, The Lucy Maud Montgomery Birthplace, the L.M. Montgomery Institute at the University of Prince Edward Island, and, as lead, the Confederation Centre Art Gallery.

Complementing 4000 works of art with 400 lesson plans generated by a team of educators, Telling Stories uses the Confederation Centre Art Gallery collection and works of art from gallery collections across Canada to explore the symbols and icons that are used in the artworks to tell stories about the geographical, historical, and cultural make-up of Canada. Telling Stories was co-produced in 1998 by the Gallery and the Prince Edward Island Department of Education, with support from the Department of Canadian Heritage. A print version of the program is currently used at the Grade 8 level throughout the province.
