Voices from the Engraver

Voices from the Engraver

Voices from the Engraver features water colours, photos and drawings along with engraver's tools and printing plates used in the production of bank notes and stamps.

Post a letter or buy your lunch with art? You do it every day. Experience the creative process, the technical skill and the sheer artistry that underlies every series of Canadian stamps and bank notes from concept to final product. Reproductions of original art, printing plates, tools, rare stamps, and money (lots of money) are waiting for you in this fun, informative and enriching look into the beauty and intricacy of Canadian stamps and bank notes.

Participate in our hands-on interactives, re-produce the beautifully elaborate patterns of classic bank notes and browse through a millennium's worth of engravers and engraving history.

An exhibition produced by the Bank of Canada Museum in partnership with the Canadian Museum of History.

The exhibit runs from March 7 to May 24, 2018.

Here's what's hot

Presence is a year-long program funded by the City of Mississauga. Throughout the program, residents were invited to participate in workshops, exhibitions, and performances, to explore storytelling and uncover the city's cultural identities.

Witness the birth of a new landscape through photography. Through the eyes of creative photo artists, we can explore our relationship and connection with water, landscapes, and our shared responsibility to the Great Lakes.

This year Celebration Square welcomes monsters of all ages to join in the Halloween fun. Starting October 22 through to October 31, Celebration Square will bring three popular Halloween inspired stories to life. Dress up in your monster tails to explore some of our favourite monster tales.

The Museums of Mississauga and Mississauga Celebration Square have partnered to invite a Curator or team of Curators who identify as BIPOC to develop a project that engages with the community to be delivered in 2022.
